Grants to Scholars helps to fund visiting scholars with particular research needs in the University of Wisconsin–Madison Libraries. The Friends award a handful of grants-in-aid annually, each of which is generally for one month’s duration, for research in the humanities, sciences, and related fields appropriate to the libraries’ collection strengths. The purpose is to foster the high-level use of the University of Wisconsin–Madison Libraries’ rich holdings, and to make them better known and more accessible to a wider circle of scholars. The annual application deadline is February 1 of each year.
