Early Research Initiative (ERI)
Archival Research Grants
Deadline for Applications: Tuesday, January 31, 2023, 3pm
The Provost’s Office is pleased to announce the following summer research grant programs to support advanced doctoral student research and travel.
The Early Research Initiative Knickerbocker Award for Archival Research in American Studies is designed to support doctoral students whose projects necessitate work in archives, repositories, and special collections (public and private) during the summer of 2023. Particular attention will be given to research projects that are interdisciplinary in nature. Students need not be members of the American Studies Certificate Program in order to apply, but their research must intersect with American Studies (broadly construed) in some discernible way.
The Early Research Initiative Award for Archival Research in African American and African Diaspora Studies will support doctoral students for work in archives, repositories, and special collections (public and private) during the summer of 2023 that focuses directly on the history, society, and culture of Africans and persons of African descent. Particular attention will be given to research projects that are interdisciplinary in nature. In addition to the general requirements for Early Research Initiative Awards for Archival Research, successful candidates for the African American and African Diaspora Studies Award will be required to organize and participate in a roundtable discussion of “African Diaspora Studies and the Archive.” This event will take place under the sponsorship of the Institute for Research on the African Diaspora in the Americas and the Caribbean (IRADAC).
