Thu, 03/28/2013 - 12:02 -- Jonathan Kelley

Applications are now open for FTRF's 2013 Judith F. Krug Memorial Fund Banned Books Week event grants. Grants in the amounts of $2,500 and $1,000 will be given to organizations in support of "Read-Outs” or other activities that celebrate Banned Books Week (Sept. 22 – 30, 2013).

Applications will be accepted through April 30, 2013, and the announcements will be made in June.

Organizations are required to submit an event description, timeline and budget with their application; they also will agree to provide a written report, photos and video from their event(s) to FTRF following Banned Books Week. Only not-for-profit organizations may apply. They need not have official 501(c) 3 status. Krug Fund grants cannot be used to buy computer hardware. Going forward beginning in 2013, organizations may only be awarded grants twice within a six-year period.
