Any proposal for advanced research will be considered. Applicants working on doctoral dissertations and those at the postdoctoral level are especially encouraged to apply. Projects involving alternative uses of archival records, such as background research for multimedia projects, exhibits, and documentary films, are also eligible. The topic or area of study must draw, at least in part, on the holdings of the Arizona Historical Society Archives.
Preference is given to projects that focus on little-used holdings not available electronically or on microfilm. Preferences is also given to projects that have a high probability of publication, especially in The Journal of Arizona History.
Awards generally range between $500 and $2,500 per project and are intended to defray travel and living expenses and/or other research-related costs.
Fellowships must be completed no later than one year from date of acceptance of award. At the end of the project, awardees are expected to submit a final report on their research experience. Fellows are encouraged to make one public presentation during their residency.
Research Grant Applications for 2020 will be announced in the spring. The annual deadline is September 30.
