|Organization||Whiting Creative Nonfiction Grant|
|Type||Grants and Fellowships|
|Due Date||May 4, 2020|
|Last Reported||April 1, 2020|
|Description||Recognizes that works of deeply researched and imaginatively composed nonfiction come into being at great cost to writers in time and resources. $40,000 will be awarded to as many as eight writers in the process of completing a book-length work of nonfiction for a general, not an academic, readership. Its purpose is to give grantees the additional means to do exacting research, to free up the time to bring the writing to the highest possible standard, and to encourage original and ambitious projects. Whiting welcomes submissions for works of history, cultural or political reportage, biography, memoir, the sciences, philosophy, criticism, food or travel writing, and personal essays, among other categories. Projects must be under contract with a US publisher to be eligible, and the fully-executed contract signed by all parties must be uploaded as part of the application. Contracts with self-publishing companies are not eligible.|
