Early Career Research Grants

The Research Society for American Periodicals (RSAP) invites applications for grants of between $250 and $1,000 to enhance research activities in American periodicals. These grants are intended for early career scholars – graduate students and those who have received their doctorate within the last five years – and are open to those who are “researching in place” in the midst of the ongoing pandemic. The funds may be used in a variety of ways, including but not limited to: a subscription to an online database or resource; reproduction or copyright/use fees for brick-and-mortar archival materials or digital database materials; travel to archives; childcare to enable travel or a concentrated period of research/writing; computer software.

The deadline for applications is August 1, 2020. Awards will be announced by August 15th.
