Grants ranging from $500 to $2,500 to Arizona scholars for research projects that address history, arts, government, and legal or public policy that is relevant to the region. Applications are encouraged for doctoral dissertations and projects by post-doctoral scholars; however, proposals for advanced research will also be considered. Funds are intended to defray living expenses, travel, and other research-related costs.

The Arizona Historical Society announces the availability of awards for qualified applicants to pursue research using the vast resources of the Arizona Historical Society. The Research Grant Program is intended to support advanced work in history, government, legal or public policy, and the arts as it pertains to Arizona, the West, and northern Mexico.

Projects involving alternative uses of archival records, such as background research for multimedia projects, exhibits, documentary films, and historical novels, are also eligible. The topic or area of study must draw, at least in part, on the holdings of the Arizona Historical Society Archives.

Preference is given to projects that focus on little-used holdings not available electronically or on microfilm and have a high probability of publication or other public dissemination.

At the end of the project, awardees are expected to submit a final report on their research experience. Residents are expected to make one public presentation in Arizona on their projects.
