Description

The Archives & Special Collections (A&SC) of the University of Connecticut Libraries, housed in the Thomas J. Dodd Research Center, supports the research of scholars throughout the United States and from abroad. The Travel Grants are intended to encourage use of these unique collections and to provide partial support to outstanding scholars who must travel to consult them. Grants are awarded on a rolling schedule to promising graduate students and to established scholars who plan to conduct research at the Dodd Research Center. Travel grants are awarded on a competitive basis to applicants selected by Dodd Research Center staff with consultation from University of Connecticut faculty. Awards are given in a number of subject fields reflecting the strengths of Archives & Special Collections: Alternative Press, American Literature, Business History, Connecticut History, Hispanic Culture & History, Human Rights, Labor History, Natural History, Nursing History and Railroad History. Criteria for selection include the significance of the individual's research project, his or her scholarly research credentials and letters of support and an identified need to use the A&SC collections.
