      Friends of the Princeton University Library Research Grant Program

      Each year, the Friends of the Princeton University Library offer short-term
      Library
      Research Grants to promote scholarly use of the research collections. The
      Program in Hellenic
      Studies also supports a limited number of Library Research Grants in
      Hellenic studies, and the
      Cotsen Children’s Library supports research in its collection on aspects of
      children’s books.
      The Maxwell Fund supports research on materials dealing with
      Portuguese-speaking cultures.

      These Library Research Grants, which have a value of up to $2,500 each, are
      meant to help defray
      expenses incurred in traveling to and residing in Princeton during the
      tenure of the grant. The
      length of the grant will depend on the applicant’s research proposal, but is
      ordinarily one month. Library Research Grants awarded in this academic year
      are tenable from May 2007 to April 2008, and the deadline for applications
      is 15 January 2007.

      Applicants are asked to submit a completed application form
      (http://www.princeton.edu/rbsc/fellowships/application.pdf),
      budget form
      (http://www.princeton.edu/rbsc/fellowships/budget_rev08152006a.pdf)
      a résumé, and a research proposal not exceeding three pages in length.
      Applicants must also
      arrange for two confidential letters of recommendation to be sent directly
      to the Library
      Research Grants Committee at the address given below.

      The proposal should address specifically the relevance to the proposed
      research of unique
      resources found in the Princeton University Library collections. Prospective
      grantees are
      urged to consult the Library’s home page at http://libweb.princeton.edu for
      detailed
      descriptions of the collections, especially those in the Rare Books and
      Special Collections
      Department, and for the names of curators and reference staff. Applicants
      should have specific
      Princeton resources in mind­not simply a desire to make use of a major
      research library­as they prepare their proposals.

      A committee consisting of members of the faculty, the library staff, and the
      Friends will award the
      grants on the basis of the relevance of the proposal to unique holdings of
      the library, the
      merits and significance of the project, and the applicant’s scholarly
      qualifications. Awards will be made before 1 April 2007.

      Application materials and letters of recommendation are to be mailed to
      Library Research Grant Committee, Princeton University Library, One
      Washington Road, Princeton, NJ 08544. Materials mailed to the committee must
      be postmarked no later than 15 January 2007. Facsimile transmissions may be
      sent to (609) 258-2324. Electronic communications to the committee may be
      sent to loliveir@....
      Materials submitted by e-mail or facsimile must be received no later than 15
      January 2007.
