      [mailto:H-ISLAMART@...]

      Since 1933 the American Philosophical Society has awarded small
      grants to scholars in order to support the cost of research leading
      to publication in all areas of knowledge. In 2005 the Franklin
      Research Grants program awarded $303,000 to 70 scholars, and the
      Society expects to make at least that many awards in this year's
      competition. The Franklin program is particularly designed to help
      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.

      Eligibility
      Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work
      of doctoral character and quality. Pre-doctoral graduate students are
      not eligible, but the Society is particularly interested in
      supporting the work of young scholars who have recently received
      their PhDs. American citizens and residents of the United States may
      use their Franklin awards at home or abroad. Foreign nationals 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.

      Awards
      Funding is offered up to a maximum of $6,000 for use in calendar year
      2007. Grants are not retroactive; the beginning work date cannot
      antedate the month of the meeting when the proposal will be
      considered. Grants are payable to the individual applicant. Franklin
      grants are taxable income, but the Society is not required to report
      payments. It is recommended that grant recipients discuss their
      reporting obligations with their tax advisors.
