Grants of up to $5,000 to USA, Canada, and International scholars to conduct research at a major archive center in New York. Applicants must e-mail program staff by October 15, 2018. Funding may be used to cover the costs of travel and accommodations in conjunction with the research.

Estimated Size of Grant:

The Rockefeller Archive Center's competitive research stipend program provides awards of up to $5,000.

Term of Contract:

Stipend recipients must commence their research at the Center after April 1 of their award year, and they must complete their research by March 31 of the following year.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Application to the research stipend program is open to U.S. citizens and citizens of foreign countries. Certain U.S. Government requirements will apply to non-U.S. citizens. Awards are made to individuals.

Institutions are not eligible to apply. The stipend does not support research at other institutions, and it does not provide general tuition support.

Pre-Application Information:

Potential applicants are required to contact the Archive Center's staff by email no later than October 15, 2018, with a description of the research project for which they seek support.

Applications must be received before midnight Eastern Standard Time on November 1, 2018. Two letters of recommendation are due November 22. Awards will be announced at the end of the following February.

Reimbursement of expenses will be following the receipt of original travel and accommodation receipts following the completion of the stipend recipient's research visit.

Please note that three cycles must elapse before a former stipend recipient is eligible to receive another stipend. (For example, if a stipend was awarded in 2011, 2015 would be the next program for which the stipend recipient would be eligible to apply, and the application submission deadline for the 2015 program would be November 1, 2014.)
