The Pan Am Historical Foundation awards up to $3,000 will be awarded to support a research or creative project using the Pan American World Airways, Inc. Records held by the University of Miami Libraries’ Special Collections. The grant is open to independent or affiliated scholars or artists, advanced graduate students, and faculty across disciplines. Consideration will be given to applicants from within and beyond academia, and priority will be given to research proposals that will result in publication in any media.

Since its first international flight in 1927, Pan Am positioned itself as a world leader in American commercial aviation. The Pan Am records date from 1927 to the 1990s and include administrative and financial files, technical and research reports, public relations and promotional materials, internal publications including newsletters, journals and press releases, and thousands of photographs.
