The American Muslim Story grants are offering between $1,000 and $4,000 for projects telling these often untold stories. One of the amazing consequences of the digital revolution and the Internet is that it has democratized video in a way like never before. Anyone with an smartphone can shoot, edit and publish broadcast quality video and tell stories that are not covered by the traditional media.

The grants are for "short films or projects involving video that celebrates or articulates the American Muslim experience in the U.S." and preference will be given to projects created by Muslim-Americans.

Anyone can donate to help fund the grants through indiegogo.

The money raised through the Indiegogo campaign is administered by the Islamic Scholarship Fund and gives $1-4k each for videos that tell the American Muslim story in a way that humanizes and challenges negative portrayals of our community.

Application Deadline: Friday, Feb 24 11:59pm PST
