The American Philosophical Society’s Franklin Research Grants are intended to support the cost of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge. The Franklin program is particularly designed to help meet the cost of travel to libraries and archives for research purposes; the costs associated with fieldwork; or laboratory research expenses. Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of doctoral character and quality. PhD candidates are not eligible to apply, but the Society is especially interested in supporting the work of young scholars who have recently received the doctorate. Grants range from $1,000 to $6,000. Deadline: December 3, 2018. For more information visit www.amphilsoc.org.
