GW Law invites applications for the Richard & Diane Cummins Legal History Research Grant for 2012. The Cummins Grant provides a stipend of $10,000 to support short-term historical research using the Special Collections Department at George Washington University’s Jacob Burns Law Library, which is noted for its continental historical legal collections, especially its French collection, with strengths in Roman and canon law, church-state relations, international law, and many incunabula holdings. The grant is awarded to one doctoral, LLM, or SJD candidate; postdoctoral researcher; faculty member; or independent scholar. The successful candidate may come from a variety of disciplines, including, but not limited to, law, history, religion, philosophy, or bibliography. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2011.
