National Science Foundation
American Philosophical Society’s Franklin Research Grant program provides up to $6,000 of funding for the costs of archival work or field research in almost any field. Deadlines October 1 and December 1, each year. Short application!
About deadlines: It is the policy of Rhodes College to submit grant applications and required reports 24 to 72 hours ahead of published deadlines. This allows the Grants and Foundations Manager time to address any technical glitches that may occur; manage multiple submissions; avoid submissions on weekends, holidays or scheduled vacations; and maintain the college’s reputation for excellence. We will not submit grant applications that are incomplete, last-minute, or lacking the required prior review and institutional approvals.
