The Iowa Women’s Archives (University of Iowa Libraries) announces a grant of $1500 to fund travel to Iowa City, Iowa, to conduct research in the Iowa Women’s Archives. The grant is intended to offset travel and lodging expenses of researchers whose work will benefit from using collections in the archives. The strengths of the Iowa Women’s Archives include rich collections on the history of the women’s movement, political activism, African Americans, rural women, and Latinas, especially in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The collections are global in scope.
- Graduate students, academic and public historians, and independent researchers and writers are all welcome to apply. Preference will be given to graduate students.
