Friends of the UW-Madison Libraries: Grants to Scholars

Friends of the UW-Madison Libraries: Grants to Scholars

Grants to Scholars is the Friends program which helps to fund visiting
scholars with particular research needs in the University of
Wisconsin-Madison Libraries. The Friends award a handful of grants to
scholars annually, each of which is generally for one month's
duration, for research in the humanities, sciences, and related fields
appropriate to the libraries' collection strengths. Awards are made up
to $2,000 for recipients from North America, and $3,000 for those from
elsewhere in the world. The purpose is to foster the high-level use of
the University of Wisconsin–Madison Libraries' rich holdings, and to
make them better known and more accessible to a wider circle of
scholars. The annual application deadline is February 1 of any year.

Generally, applicants must have a Ph.D. or be able to demonstrate a
record of solid intellectual accomplishment. Scholars and graduate
students who have completed all requirements except the dissertation
are also eligible. Applicants' proposals should state the specific
areas and collections to be used in our libraries and provide
information as to why these collections will be of unique benefit to
their research. The grants to scholars are designed primarily to help
provide access to UW-Madison library resources for people who live
beyond commuting distance. Preference is given to younger researchers
who are within 10 years of completing their Ph.D. or terminal degree,
and to scholars who reside outside a 150 mile radius of Madison. The
grantee is expected to be in residence during the term of the award,
which may be taken up at any time during the year.
