Mellon-Schlesinger Summer Research Grants

A major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has allowed the Schlesinger Library to launch the Long 19th Amendment Project interrogating the centennial of American women’s suffrage. The grant will fund up to three eight-week residencies June–July, 2021 for researchers doing advanced work on gender and suffrage, voting rights, citizenship, or other related topics. Successful projects will draw in meaningful ways on Schlesinger Library collections. The stipend for each award is $15,000.

We will consider applications from clusters of two or three researchers as well as from individuals. Such collaborations could produce a range of materials, from co-authored books and articles, to course syllabi, to datasets or interview transcripts, to podcasts and video modules. College and university faculty, secondary school teachers, and other advanced researchers in any relevant discipline are invited to apply for Mellon-Schlesinger Summer Research grants. Currently enrolled graduate students are not eligible for these awards and should apply instead for Schlesinger Library’s Dissertation Support Grants

Applications for this grant are currently being accepted. The deadline for submission is November 16, 2020.
