The Vagner Mendonça-Whitehead Microgrant Fund

The Vagner Mendonça-Whitehead Microgrant Fund supports equity, inclusion, and diversity in our community through unrestricted grants to BIPOC artists and scholars in the field of new media art at any stage of their career. The inaugural call for microgrant applications in 2022 received an overwhelming response, and the NMC is currently fundraising to increase the amount available for 2023. 100% of your tax-deductible donations made before January 1 will go directly to recipients of the 2023 microgrant through our annual open call.

In addition to monetary funds, grant awardees also receive support in the form of an exhibition in the NMC Header/Footer Gallery and a Member Spotlight Feature on our website. The 2022 Microgrant recipient, Chloe Lee, is currently featured in Header/ Footer Gallery. Check it out, and help us support more excellent artists and scholars!
