For eleven years, The Center for Craft, Creativity & Design (CCCD) has supported the expansion of craft scholarship in the United States by providing travel grants to craft scholars invited to speak at the annual College Art Association Conference. In recent years, CCCD has broadened this impact by offering grants of up to $1,000 to scholars invited to present craft-focused papers at any scholarly conference. Applications are accepted year-round for bi-annual review. The next Travel Grant application deadline is 11:59 pm, April 30, 2017.
