The Mark DeWolfe Howe Fund for Study and Research in Civil Rights-Civil Liberties and Legal History is now accepting proposals for either the coming summer or for the 2005-06 academic year. The annual income from the fund – approximately $20,000 to be distributed as either a single grant or in several grants – will be used to support proposals in civil rights or civil liberties, or Anglo-American legal history in the United States. Students, faculty, officers of administration, and recent graduates of the University are eligible.
The fund seeks proposals that are in the spirit of the late Professor Howe’s commitment to the cause of political liberty, social justice, and the highest standards of scholarship.
Applicants should send a brief written proposal to Professor John H. Mansfield, c/o Susan Norton, Hauser Hall 506, Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA 02138, by April 15. Application forms may be obtained from the above-mentioned address.
