Does the Historical Archives Program fund cultural documentation?

No. The Historical Archives Program is meant to encourage the preservation of materials of value for discipline history, which means the materials in question must have served as the basis for deeper anthropological inquiry that would only become evident over the course of a researcher's academic career. The Historical Archives Program therefore limits support to assisting senior scholars (or their heirs) with the expense of preparing personal research materials for archival deposit.

My paper has been accepted at a conference but I do not have the funds to attend, can I apply for a conference grant?

The Wenner-Gren Foundation DOES NOT provide funds to individuals to travel to conferences, even if they have been invited to present a paper. All conference and workshop grants are made to the organizers of the event, who then use this money to fund their list of partcipants. If you are hoping to attend a conference or present a paper, either internationally or within you own country, the Foundation will not be able to assist you.
