American Philosophical Society seeks applications for the Franklin Research Grants

American Philosophical Society (APS) provides small grants to scholars in order to support the cost of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge.

APS is currently seeking applications from eligible candidates for the Franklin Research Grants program aimed at helping meet the costs of travel to libraries and archives for research purposes; the purchase of microfilm, photocopies, or equivalent research materials; the costs associated with fieldwork; or laboratory research expenses.

Franklin grants are made for noncommercial research. They are not intended to meet the expenses of attending conferences or the costs of publication. The Society does not pay overhead or indirect costs to any institution. Grants will not be made to replace salary during a leave of absence or earnings from summer teaching; pay living expenses while working at home; cover the costs of consultants or research assistants; or purchase permanent equipment such as computers, cameras, tape recorders, or laboratory apparatus.

Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of doctoral character and quality. Ph.D. candidates are not eligible to apply, but the Society is particularly interested in supporting the work of young scholars who have recently received the doctorate. American citizens and residents of the United States may use their Franklin awards at home or abroad. Foreign nationals not affiliated with a U.S. institution must use their Franklin awards for research in the United States. Applicants who have received Franklin grants may reapply after an interval of two years.

Grant Size
Funding is offered up to a maximum of $6,000 for use in calendar year 2012. Grants are not retroactive. Grants are payable to the individual applicant.

Last date for submission of applications is October 3, 2011
