Each year, The New York Public Library selects a Martin Duberman Visiting Scholar, who will receive $15,000 to support scholarship requiring substantial onsite use of the Library’s premier LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) history collections. The funding is to support travel to New York City and related expenses supporting their research. The program is limited to emerging and/or independent scholars—those without tenured academic appointments or who are unaffiliated with an academic institution.
