The Immigration History Research Center Archives at the University of Minnesota Libraries invites applications for the Grant-in-Aid Award. This award will prioritize applicants who identify as people of color, as well as those who identify as members of groups historically marginalized in academia and archives.
The Immigration History Research Center Archives (IHRCA) offers Grant-in-Aid (GIA) Awards to support a visit to Andersen Library in order to conduct research in the IHRCA collections. Awards are available through co-sponsorship by the Immigration History Research Center and the IHRCA through the ethnic and general funds. The award is for travel and research-related expenses.
This award is open to researchers of all disciplines, backgrounds, and levels of training, and is intended to support a research visit of 5 days. Awards are for $2,000.00, and four such awards are given each year. Grant-in-Aid Awards are intended to help support the expenses of people who are based outside of the Minneapolis-St. Paul (Minnesota, USA) metro area, and to be used within 12 months.
