Reminder! Don't Miss Your Opportunity to Apply for the CLAGS Fall Fellowships and Awards

The Center for LGBTQ Studies (CLAGS) was founded in 1991 as the first university-based research center in the United States dedicated to the study of historical, cultural, and political issues of vital concern to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals and communities. By sponsoring public programs and conferences, offering fellowships to individual scholars, and functioning as an indispensable conduit of information, CLAGS serves as a national center for the promotion of scholarship that fosters social change.

For more information and admission guidelines please visit: www.clags.org
Submissions for the following Fall Fellowships are due November 15th:

The Robert Giard Fellowship Award in Moving Image

An annual award named for Robert Giard, a portrait, landscape, and figure photographer whose work often focused on LGBTQ lives and issues, this award is presented to an emerging, early or mid-career artist, from any country, working in photography, photo-based media, video, or moving image, including short-form film or video.  The award now alternates annually between artists working with still image (photography) and those working with moving image (video or film).  This year's fellowship will be awarded to an artist working in moving image (video or film). In either case, this award will support a directed project, one that is new or continuing, that addresses issues of sexuality, gender, or LGBTQ identity.
