SAADA is at the forefront of advancing a community-driven approach to archival collecting, where archival work is done by and with the community, and not just for the community. Through the Archival Creators Fellowship Program, fellows partner with SAADA to create archival collections that reflect the histories and perspectives of marginalized groups within the South Asian American community. These include, but are not limited to, communities that are working class, undocumented, LGBTQ+, Dalit, Muslim, Indo-Caribbean, or otherwise excluded or overlooked in mainstream South Asian American narratives.


This fellowship program is open to all U.S.-based individuals with valid work authorization who are themselves members of the community they will be archiving, or in which they otherwise have deep existing relationships.
