Applications Open

Applications are now open for the 2023-2024 Northwestern Libraries Research Grants. The deadline to apply is April 1, 2023.

This travel grant was established in 2021 to facilitate and support research projects that significantly benefit from substantial onsite use of the unique, special and archival collections of the Herskovits Library. The grant is available to researchers whose projects explore new lines of inquiry, interdisciplinary and multi-layered research, and advanced scholarship that will contribute to the deeper understanding of the diverse peoples and countries of the African continent. Projects should emphasize the need for extensive onsite use of the library's collections.

The grant is supported by funds from the Northwestern Libraries and the Program of African Studies.
