The Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America invites applicants for a variety of research grants that require use of its resources. Applications will be evaluated on the significance of the research and the project's potential contribution to the advancement of knowledge as well as its creativity in drawing on the library's holdings. We encourage applicants to review carefully the finding aides to our collections, and/ or to contact the research services team to find out more about the scope and scale of collections relevant to your application. The awards may be used to cover travel and living expenses, photocopying, and other incidental research expenses, but not for the purchase of durable equipment or travel to other sites for research.

Grants of up to $3,000 will be given in each category on a competitive basis.

  • A project description (no longer than 4-6 double-spaced pages in 12-point font) indicating the purpose of the research, the Schlesinger Library holdings to be consulted, and the significance of these holdings to the project overall.
