Michigan State University Libraries invites applications for research grants for the summer of 2020. The grants are intended to help scholars who live more than 100 miles from East Lansing whose research would benefit from on-site access to the rich primary source collections housed in MSU Libraries’ Special Collections. Five grants of $3,000 will be awarded based on the overall promise of the research project and the significance of MSU’s Special Collections to the work. The on-site research period must run for at least one week between May 1 and September 30 of the year awarded. For more information on MSU Special Collections, including the José F. Treviño Chicanx/Latinx Activism Collection, visit the Special Collections website: https://lib.msu.edu/spc/collections/
The grant competition is open to graduate students from across the University of Kentucky campus. We encourage everyone to apply; however, depending on the number of applications received, priority will be given to students who have not received support in the last two years. Support is available for Master's thesis research and preliminary doctoral dissertation projects. Recipients must spend at least two weeks at the site of research. Though most grants are awarded for summer travel, applications for winter travel are also accepted.
Research Travel Grants support projects that present creative approaches, including historical research and documentation projects resulting in dissertations, publications, exhibitions, educational initiatives, documentary films, or other multimedia products and artistic works.
Research projects must use materials from the Human Rights Archive's collections and include a focus on human rights and social justice. Anyone who wishes to use materials from the Human Rights Archive's collections for historical research related to the history of human rights may apply, regardless of academic status.
Applicants for study/research awards design their own projects and will typically work with advisers at foreign universities or other institutes of higher education. The study/research awards are available in approximately 140 countries. Program requirements vary by country, so the applicants' first step is to familiarize themselves with the program summary for the host country.
