MEAP seeks to fund projects to preserve and document collections at risk from environmental conditions, political uncertainty, inherently unsustainable media, inappropriate storage, or communal and social change. We offer two levels of support for projects to organize, collect, convert and describe archival material or existing digital assets. All digitized objects are published online and preserved in perpetuity by the UCLA Library.
Explore the Application Template and MEAP Guidelines before you submit your application. All applications must be submitted in English through our new online portal.
Please note: Modern Endangered Archives Program is the new name for Documenting Global Voices. All funding and applications will be under the name Modern Endangered Archives Program.
MEAP Application Process
