Franklin Research Grants from the American Philosophical Society

Tuesday, August 21, 2018   (0 Comments)

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.

Deadlines
For applications and two letters of support:

October 1, 2018, for a January 2019 decision for work in February 2019 through January 2020

December 3, 2018, for a March 2019 decision for work in April 2019 through January 2020

Eligibility
Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of doctoral character and quality. Ph.D. candidates are not eligible to apply, but the Society is particularly interested in supporting the work of young scholars who have recently received the doctorate. Independent scholars and faculty members at all four-year and two-year research and non-research institutions are welcome to apply provided that all eligibility guidelines are met.

American citizens and residents of the United States may use their Franklin awards at home or abroad. Foreign nationals not affiliated with a U.S. institution must use their Franklin awards for research in the United States. Applicants who have previously received a Franklin grant may reapply after an interval of two years. Awards Funding is offered up to a maximum of $6,000.

Further information and access to the application portal are available at https://www.amphilsoc.org/grants/franklin-research-grants. Questions may be directed to Linda Musumeci, LMusumeci@amphilsoc.org or 215-440-3429.
