Research grants are being made available to scholars interested in conducting work in the Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers at OSU Libraries Special Collections. Stipends of $2,500 per month renewable for up to three months (for a total maximum grant award of $7,500) will be awarded to researchers in the history of science whose proposals detail a compelling potential use of the materials held in the vast Pauling archive. Grant monies can be used for any purpose.
Researchers will be expected to conduct their scholarly activities while in residence at the OSU Libraries Special Collections. Historians, librarians, doctoral or post-doctoral students and independent scholars are welcome to apply. The deadline for applying for Resident Scholar Program support is April 10, 2008.
Detailed information outlining the qualifications necessary for application, the selection process and the conditions under which awards will be made is available at the following PDF: http://osulibrary.oregonstate.edu/specialcollections/coll/pauling/residentscholar.pdf
