Description

The Friends of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Library are pleased to offer grants-in-aid for research in the humanities in any field appropriate to the collections. The purpose is to foster the high-level use of the University of Wisconsin-Madison Library's rich holdings, and to make them better known and more accessible to a wider circle of scholars. The grants-in-aid are designed primarily to help provide access to UW-Madison library resources for people who live beyond commuting distance.

Applicants' proposals should state the specific areas and collections to be used in the university's libraries and provide information as to why these collections will be of unique benefit to their research. Generally, applicants must have a Ph.D. or be able to demonstrate a record of solid intellectual accomplishment. Scholars and graduate students who have completed all requirements except the dissertation are also eligible. Preference is given to younger researchers who are within 10 years of completing their Ph.D. or terminal degree.
