Fellowship Opportunities: Hartman Center at Duke

The John W. Hartman Center for Sales, Advertising and Marketing History, part of the David M. Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Duke University, announces the availability of three grants for research travel to our collections: the Alvin Achenbaum travel grant, FOARE Fellowship for Outdoor Advertising Research, and the John Furr Fellowship for research in the J. Walter Thompson Co. Archives.
       The John W. Hartman Center promotes the understanding of the social, cultural and historical influence of advertising and marketing through the collection of published and unpublished resources. Strengths of the collection include direct marketing and sales, outdoor advertising, women in the industry, trade industry association records, and the records of multiple advertising agencies and marketing firms.
       Travel grants are available to faculty, graduate and undergraduate students, artists, and independent scholars with a research project that would benefit from access to materials held by the Center.
       For more information on the available grants please visit the Hartman Center website. The deadline for applications is January 31, 2018 by 5:00 p.m. EST. Questions about the travel grant program or application process should be directed to hartman-center@duke.edu.
