Institute for Southern Studies grants

Filed under: The Academy — John Maass @ 6:32 am

Through the generosity of the Watson-Brown Foundation, the Institute for Southern Studies at the University of South Carolina offers travel grants for scholars who will visit Columbia for at least one week to conduct research. Selection of applicants will be based on the strength of academic qualifications, the potential of the project to contribute to scholarship on the South, and the specificity of plans to make use of local research resources. Grants of $500 will be awarded to fellows in residence for a minimum of one week; a higher level of funding may be available to promising projects that will involve a longer period of residence. Residents of the Columbia area are not eligible for travel grants. The institute welcomes applications from PhD candidates. Applicants should send a letter of interest, c.v., one letter of recommendation, and two-page project description to Bob Ellis, Business Manager, Institute for Southern Studies, University of South Carolina, Gambrell Hall, Columbia, SC 29208. Applications will be considered through May 1, 2007.

Application deadline: May 01, 2007
