Now Accepting Applications for 2010 Resident Scholars

Research grants are being made available to scholars interested in conducting work in the Oregon State University 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 whose proposals detail a compelling potential use of the materials held in Special Collections. Grant monies can be used for any purpose.

Researchers will be expected to conduct their scholarly activities while in residence at Oregon State University. Historians, librarians, graduate, doctoral or post-doctoral students and independent scholars are welcome to apply. The deadline for submitting proposals is April 10, 2010.

Detailed information outlining the qualifications necessary for application, as well as the selection process and the conditions under which awards will be made, is available at the following location (PDF link):

The Resident Scholar Program is generously supported by the Peter and Judith Freeman Fund.  In 2009 research by Burtron Davis (University of Kentucky), Toshihiro Higuchi (Georgetown University), Mina Carson (Oregon State University) and Jane Nisselson (Virtual Beauty – New York City) was supported by the program.
