Series Description

The Alfredo Cisneros del Moral (ACDM) Foundation records span 1997-2014 and document the activities of this organization Cisneros founded in her father’s name in 1998 (incorporated in 2000).

The container list includes a full description of the contents of these binders, arranged chronologically. The listing includes the names of the selection panel, the nominees, and the nominators. The fifteenth and final recipient of the Alfredo Cisneros del Moral grant was ire’ne lara silva, in 2014.
