The National Air and Space Museum is offering a grant of $5,000, to be awarded in even-numbered years (2024, 2026, etc.), to support research on aerospace topics. The product created as a result of the grant must be in any form suitable for potential public dissemination in print, electronic, broadcast, or other visual medium, including, but not limited to, a book manuscript, video, film script, or monograph. Potential topics might be contemporary aviation or space events that are of interest to the general public; significant persons, historical events, or trends that illuminate the history of human flight in air and space; records; or compendia of aerospace source material.

Funds may be used to support research travel and expenses, or to produce a product of the research as outlined above. Recipients of the award need not be in residence at the National Air and Space Museum.
