The Gerald R. Ford Foundation awards grants of up to $2,200 each in support of research in the archival collections of the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library, part of the system of Presidential Libraries administered by the National Archives and Records Administration. The collections are especially rich on U.S. government domestic policies, diplomacy, and national political affairs in the 1970s. A grant helps defray the travel and living expenses of a research trip to the Ford Library.
A colleague (Scott Ainsworth, UGA) and I are working on a three-volume encyclopedia series, Political Parties, Interest Groups, and Organizations that Shaped America: An Encyclopedia and Document Collection to be published by ABC-CLIO/Greenwood Press in 2018. The series traces the history of parties and groups from the Founding Era through the Civil War, through the Post-War Era, to the present.
The Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars is accepting applications for their 9-month residential fellowships offered for the 2018-2019 year. Applicants from any country are welcome to apply (applicants from outside the United States must be able to obtain a J-1 visa). Fellows conduct research and write in their areas of expertise, while interacting with policymakers in Washington and Wilson Center staff. The Center accepts non-advocacy, policy-relevant, fellowship proposals that address key policy challenges facing the United States and the world.
