Application for the 2019 Chase Family Travel Grant for Graduate Scholars is now open. Applications must be received via email by 5:00 PM on Friday, November 30, 2018. The Chase Family Grant is made possible through an endowment created by members of the Chase family, pioneers in Florida citrus growing. Its purpose is to enable graduate students to conduct research in the P.K. Yonge Library of Florida History at the George A. Smathers Library, University of Florida. Applicants should be enrolled in a graduate program leading to the masters or doctoral degree and actively engaged in research on Florida history or research that incorporates Florida as a major focus. Preference will be given to graduate students from institutions outside the State of Florida who demonstrate a need to travel to UF for on-campus access to the resources of Special Collections. Applications dealing with agricultural history are encouraged but all topics on Florida are eligible. One grant will be made annually for a maximum of $1000. This fund was originally established in honor of Cecilia L. Johnson, with further support in memory of Joshua C. Johnson.
