About the bursary

The ‘Hidden Stories Fund’ is a temporary fund to support CENL members who have new projects to collect, preserve, research and highlight the stories from, by and related to underrepresented communities in their national collections. This fund‘s aim is to encourage and support working with underrepresented communities to ensure that their stories are preserved for future generations.

Our definition of ‘underrepresented communities’ includes any voices who have not been offered the same platforms as dominant voices and include women, BAME and LGBTQ+ communities, people with disabilities, caring responsibilities, and those from socially or economically disadvantaged backgrounds, as well as any communities whose stories have been under-explored previously.

Details on how to apply can be found in the members area.

Please contact the CENL Secretariat at cenl@dnb.de if you have any questions on this fund.
