Research grants available through Schlesinger Library

The Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study is now accepting applications for its Carol K. Pforzheimer Student Fellowship grants. Intended to encourage Harvard College students to use the resources of the Schlesinger Library, the fellowship awards $100 to $2,500 to cover research expenses, or as a stipend in lieu of summer employment, to enable the recipient to pursue research in the library’s collections.

Preference will be given to applicants whose topics deal with the history of community service and volunteer work, the culinary arts, women and health, or work and the family. The research may be related to a project for which academic credit will be given, though this is not necessary.
