Harry S. Truman Library Institute Research Grants

Description

The Harry S. Truman Library Institute Research Grants are awarded biannually and are intended to enable graduate students, post-doctoral scholars and other researchers to come to the Harry S. Truman Library for one to three weeks to use its collections. Awards are to offset expenses incurred for this purpose only. Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are particularly encouraged to apply, but applications from others engaged in advanced research will also be considered. Preference will be given to projects that have application to enduring public policy and foreign policy issues and that have a high probability of being published or publicly disseminated in some other way. The potential contribution of a project to an applicant's development as a scholar will also be considered. An individual may receive no more than two Research Grants in a five-year period. The deadlines to apply are April 1 and October 1, annually. Two letters of reference from persons familiar with the applicant's scholarly work, including one from the project advisor, if the candidate is a graduate or post-doctoral student are required. Application packets may be mailed or e-mailed. Please visit the fellowship's website for more information.
