Call for applications: EXPLORATORY RESEARCH GRANTS at Hagley


EXPLORATORY RESEARCH GRANTS

These grants support one-week visits by scholars who believe that their project will benefit from Hagley research collections, but need the opportunity to explore them on-site to determine if a Henry Belin du Pont research grant application is warranted. Priority will be given to junior scholars with innovative projects that seek to expand on existing scholarship. Proposals must demonstrate which Hagley collections might be pertinent to the project.

Applicants should reside more than 50 miles from Hagley, and the stipend is $400. Low-cost accommodations on Hagley's grounds are available on first-come, first serve basis. Researchers who use this housing are strongly encouraged to have a car available for transportation during their residency.

Deadline March 31, 2021

All application materials must be submitted in the order below in one PDF file through the online link as indicated.

Please include the following materials:

  • Project abstract (maximum length: 150 words)
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Project description indicating the scope of your research and the existing scholarship with which you engage (maximum length: 1000 words).
  • Summary of the Hagley research materials that you plan to consult during your residency and how you believe that they may be pertinent to your project (maximum length: 500 words).

Please email any questions to Dr. Roger Horowitz, rhorowitz@hagley.org.
