Franklin Research Grants

[We have the following announcement of the Franklin Research Grants.]

The American Philosophical Society invites scholars holding the Ph.D. to apply to its program of small grants that support the cost of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge. The Franklin program is particularly designed to help meet the costs of travel to libraries and archives for research purposes; the purchase of microfilm, photocopies, or equivalent research materials; the costs associated with fieldwork; or laboratory research expenses.

Awards range from $1,000 to $6,000. Again there are two deadlines. The first is October 1, for work between February 2019 and January 2020 (including the opportunity to apply for the joint APS/British Academy Fellowship). The second is December 3, for work between April 2019 and January 2020.

For further details and application instructions, please visit [here] or contact Linda Musumeci, Director of Grants and Fellowships, at or 215-440-3429.
