Franklin Research Grants
This program of small grants to scholars is intended to support the cost of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge. The Franklin program is particularly designed to help meet the cost of travel to libraries and archives for research purposes; the purchase of microfilm, photocopies or equivalent research materials; the costs associated with fieldwork; or laboratory research expenses.
Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of doctoral character and quality. PhD candidates are not eligible to apply, but the Society is especially interested in supporting the work of young scholars who have recently received the doctorate.
From $1,000 to $6,000.
October 2, December 1; notification in January and March.
Aim and Mission
To support emerging scholars through small grants;
To promote scholarship with a social policy application; and
To encourage projects that address contemporary issues in the social sciences.
Grants are based solely on merit. Each is worth a total of $7,500; $5,000 is awarded initially and $2,500 upon completion of the project.
For grant recipients to be entitled to their second installment, they must show evidence of one of the following:
Acceptance and approval of their dissertation;
Acceptance of an article based on the research by a peer-reviewed journal; or
Invitation to write a book chapter based on the research.
Grants are non-renewable and recipients have five years from announcement of the award to complete their project and claim their final payment.
Applicants must be current PhD candidates who are working on their dissertation;
Applicants must not have a PhD; those who do, are ineligible;
Applicants must have defended their dissertation proposal or had their topic approved by their department;
Applicants can be from any country and any university in the world. US citizenship or residency is not required.
The foundation supports projects with a social policy application on either a global or local level.
Applications are evaluated based on the Trustees’ assessment of criteria such as: feasibility, applicability, originality, methodology, theoretically informed or empirically rich research, and letters of recommendation. No specific weight is given to any one area. Proposals are evaluated based on overall merit of all aspects of the application.
We encourage applicants to look at the kind of projects we have supported in previous years. See Previous Recipients.
Awards are made to individuals, not institutions. If processed through an institution, a waiver for overhead is required.
Recipients are expected to acknowledge assistance provided by the foundation in any publication resulting from their research and should notify the foundation with publication details.
Grants are issued immediately on receipt of an acceptance letter from the recipient. It is the applicant’s responsibility to ensure the grant does not conflict with other funding they have secured. Grants are usually administered in June of the year they are decided.
Grant recipients will be publicized on the foundation’s website, in appropriate professional media, and a press release to university media offices.
Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research
The Lewis and Clark Fund encourages exploratory field studies for the collection of specimens and data and to provide the imaginative stimulus that accompanies direct observation. Applications are invited from disciplines with a large dependence on field studies, such as archaeology, anthropology, biology, ecology, geography, geology, linguistics, and paleontology, but grants will not be restricted to these fields.
Grants will be available to doctoral students who wish to participate in field studies for their dissertations or for other purposes. Master’s candidates, undergraduates, and postdoctoral fellows are not eligible.
Grants will depend on travel costs but will ordinarily be in the range of several hundred dollars to about $5,000.
February 1 (letters of support due January 30); notification in May.
Phillips Fund Grants for Native American Research
For research in Native American linguistics and ethnohistory, focusing on the continental United States and Canada. Given for a maximum of one year from date of award to cover travel, tapes, and consultants’ fees.
Applicants may be graduate students pursuing either a master’s or a doctoral degree; postdoctoral applicants are also eligible.
From $1,000 to $3,500.
