Penn State Harrisburg Library, Archives and Special Collections Travel and Research Grant Program, 2010-2011
from Dolores' List of CFPs
Call for Applications

Penn State Harrisburg is pleased to offer, for the third
consecutive year, a grant program to support visiting
scholars and graduate students who need to use materials
held by Archives and Special Collections in the Penn State
Harrisburg Library.

The travel and research grant program encourages scholarly
use of the repository's premier collection, the Alice
Marshall Women's History Collection, considered to be one
of the largest privately-compiled research collections on
women's history in the United States.

One grant will be awarded with a stipend between $500 and
$3,000 to cover travel, overnight accommodations, and other
research-related expenses. Research topics are not limited
to women's history, but they must require significant use of
the repository's holdings.

IS FRIDAY, MAY 28, 2010. Recipients will be notified by
early June 2010.

For more information and to access the grant guidelines and
an application form, please visit
or contact Heidi N. Abbey, humanities reference librarian
and archivist, via email at, or by phone
at 717-948-6056.
