Each year, the Newcomb Archives awards two $600 Travel-to-Collections Grants to scholars wishing to conduct research in the Newcomb Archives. The grants are available to graduate students for research towards M.A., Ph.D., or other post graduate degrees; faculty members working on research projects; or independent scholars working on nonprofit projects.
To apply, please submit three copies of the following materials:
- Description of the research project and rationale for travel to the Archives (2-3 pages);
- A letter of support from someone who is familiar with your work and your c.v.;
- A budget itemizing anticipated research expenses.
Preference is given to researchers interested in Newcomb pottery; the lives of artists educated at Newcomb, particularly Sadie Irvine, Harriet Joor or Juanita Mauras; or the life courses of educated women during the period spanning from 1900 to the 1950s.
