    2022 Dance/USA Summer Archiving Fellowships

    Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance, invites applications for the Dance/USA 2022 Archiving and Preservation Fellowship Program for master's degree students in library and information sciences and related fields. The theme of this round of Fellowships, generously supported by funding from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, is Preserving Cultural Heritage, Supporting Communities. 

    The goal of the Archiving and Preservation Fellowship Program is to develop an engaged, passionate, and well-trained next generation of archivists in the dance ecosystem and to advance models for community-based archiving assistance to regional dance communities. Dance/USA invites applicants who are committed to advancing a more equitable and inclusive archives field that reflects and supports the true diversity of voices, practices, and identities within dance communities. Applicants should be interested in learning and applying archiving methods that are culturally sensitive and rooted in community practice.

    Dance/USA will award six Fellowships in 2022, with a stipend of $10,000 per Fellow

    Deadline: 11:59pm EST, February 28, 2022
