Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring travel grants from the Robert J. Dole Institute.
The Dole Institute Travel Grant program is intended to defray costs associated with research-related travel to the Dole Institute. Established in 2010, this funding program awards grants to scholars engaged in projects studying Congress, politics, or policy issues. The Dole Archive and Special Collections at the Dole Institute of Politics houses Senator Bob Dole’s extensive collections that document his 36-year career in the House and Senate. While in residence, the Research Fellow and Travel Grant awardees will use these collections, which encompass a wide range of legislative, historical, and policy issues.
This program offers reimbursements of up to $750 to undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and independent scholars. Awards for 2016 must be used before June 30, 2017, while 2017 awards may be used after July 1, 2017.
End: Applications for travel grants are reviewed on a rolling basis. There is no deadline to apply, and applications will be accepted until funds are exhausted. Applicants can expect a decision regarding their application within 2–4 weeks.
