Grant Deadline 2009-10-01

The Franklin Research Grants, first given in 1933, are small grants to scholars intended to support the cost of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge. The Franklin program is particularly designed to help meet the cost of travel to libraries and archives for research purposes; the purchase of microfilm, photocopies or equivalent research materials; the costs associated with fieldwork; or laboratory research expenses.
Eligibility
Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of doctoral character and quality. Ph.D. candidates are not eligible, but the Society is especially interested in supporting the work of young scholars who have recently received the doctorate.
Award
From $1,000 to $6,000.
Deadlines
For applications and two letters of support:
* October 1, 2009, for a January 2010 decision for work in February through December
* December 1, 2009, for a March 2010 decision for work in April through December
