The Iowa Women’s Archives (University of Iowa Libraries, Iowa City IA) offers one grant of $1000 to fund travel to Iowa City, Iowa, to conduct research in the Iowa Women’s Archives.  The Iowa Women’s Archives has rich holdings on the history of the women’s movement, political activism, African Americans, rural women, and Latinas, especially in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries.  The collections are global in scope, though all have a connection to Iowa.

We welcome applicants from a variety of backgrounds, including graduate students, academic and public historians, and independent researchers and writers, although preference will be given to graduate students. The grant is intended to offset travel and lodging expenses of researchers whose work will benefit from using collections in the archives.  The application deadline is April 15, 2016.
