The Hargrett Rare Book and Manuscript Library advances the research, instructional, and service mission of the University of Georgia by collecting, preserving, and sharing the published and unpublished works that document the history and culture of Georgia. The Hargrett Library promotes the state’s literary, cultural, social, and economic legacy; and it builds collections of distinction in other areas, including natural history, ecology and environmentalism, history of the book, performing arts, women’s history, journalism and print media, and University history.

The Hargrett Library and its research centers provide travel stipends of up to $1,000 for researchers whose work would benefit from access to the collections held at UGA. Currently, travel stipends are available for the following research centers:

  • Hargrett Library Signature Research Stipend
  • James W. Woodruff, Sr. Center for Natural History
  • Stephen E. Draper Center and Archives for the Study of Water Law and Policy
  • Lucy Hargrett Draper Center and Archives for the Study of the Rights of Women
  • Freddy Wittop Center for the Study of Performing Arts
  • George Horace Lorimer Center for Print Media
  • Georgia Writers Hall of Fame

Short-term Research Stipends support projects that present creative approaches, including historical research and documentation projects resulting in dissertations, publications, exhibitions, educational initiatives, documentary films, or other multimedia products and artistic works. The research topic must be appropriate to the individual Centers offering travel stipends. All applications are due by April 1, 2019, to be used for research at the library from July 1, 2019 through June 30, 2020.
