1492/1619 American Aftermaths Grant

The 2023 grant application for the 1492/1619 American Aftermaths grant is now open. Please note that the
application cycle for the traditional post-conflict grant will be announced in late December or early January.
As always, there will be one winner of the $25,000 grant. Thanks to the generous support of the Jonathan
Logan Family Foundation for all five years of our American Aftermaths grant focus, the four finalists each
year will also receive a $5,000 grant.

Please read the enclosed information carefully. You will find:

1. An FAQ page about the new grant
2. Technical guidelines for your application and portfolio, and how to file
3. An application form which requires your signature and contact information
4. Terms and conditions for applying and what is expected of you as a grant winner or finalist.

These should answer most, if not all, of your questions about the grant application process. Please be sure
you’ve read them before asking additional questions. If you do need more information, send an email to:

Please be patient – you will definitely receive an answer, it may just take a little time. Please don’t wait until
the last minute; we get swamped with applications at the very end and it’s harder to answer questions then.
The deadline to apply is November 18, 2022. The winner and finalists will be announced in mid-December.
I can’t stress enough how much we’re looking forward to considering your projects related to the aftermaths
of these key periods in American history. You don’t have to address both 1492 and 1619, but you do need to
have a thoughtful proposal (and strong work) that shows your understanding of how these aftermaths still
resonate today.

Visit our website to see the work of 2021 and 2022 grant winners and finalists for some wonderful examples
of American Aftermaths. Reach out if you have questions about whether your proposal is a fit. TAP’s board
and advisory committee all feel this is some of the most important work we’ve ever funded. Thank you for
your individual commitments as photographers to helping us all grapple with these legacies.
