Dear Colleagues:

I write to inform you of an exciting new funding opportunity we have created for secondary school teachers to work in our collections and connect these primary source materials to their work in the classroom.

Below you will find more information about this funding opportunity as well as links to our grant website with sample proposals.   We hope you are able to peruse this information and share this announcement widely within your networks.  If I can answer any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me at the email or telephone number below.

Thank you very much in advance for your time.
Best Wishes and Happy New Year,

The Schlesinger Library invites secondary school teachers to apply for support for research in our collections connected to their work in the classroom. Grants of up to $3,000 will be given on a competitive basis. Priority will be given to those who have demonstrated innovative pedagogy in social studies and history, and whose proposals make a compelling case about the ways materials available only at the Schlesinger Library will be incorporated into the applicant’s curriculum plans. The awards may be used to cover travel and living expenses, photocopies or other reproductions, and other incidental research expenses, but not for the purchase of equipment or travel to other sites for research.

Applications must be received by Monday, February 5, 2018. Awards will be announced in early April 2018, to be used for research at the library from July 1, 2018, through June 30, 2019.

Apply now via our online application. Candidates must apply online for all Schlesinger Library Grant offerings.
