ALAA is pleased to announce that applications are now open for an emergency relief grant program in support of our colleagues who are suffering financial hardships as a result of the COVID-19 crisis. There is no doubt that the current public health crisis has rippled and negatively impacted those of us working in museums and higher education. Many of our colleagues are facing furloughs, non-renewed/terminated contracts, decreased pay, or the dire consequences of hiring freezes.
ALAA plans to offer micro-grants of up to $500 to contingent professionals, graduate students, and independent scholars of Latin American and/or Latinx art who are most vulnerable to economic precarity. To apply, please complete the application form link below. Applications are due Tuesday, September 1, 2020.
Applications are now closed.
NOTE: applicants will also need to send a short, 2-page CV to ALAACovidFund@gmail.com in order to complete their application.
Please continue to check this page for updates! You can direct any inquiries to our Secretary-Treasurer, Lesley Wolff at Lesley.Wolff@ttu.edu.
