Travel Grant: Melville J. Herskovits Library of African Studies

Northwestern University, USA

The Melville J. Herskovits travel grant was established in 2021 to facilitate and support research projects that significantly benefit from substantial onsite use of the unique, special and archival collections of the Herskovits Library. The grant is available to researchers whose projects explore new lines of inquiry, interdisciplinary and multi-layered research, and advanced scholarship that will contribute to the deeper understanding of the diverse peoples and countries of the African continent. 

Each year one or more grants are awarded, up to a total of $10,000, open to all fields of study supported by the collections of the Herskovits Library of African Studies. Grants will be awarded to reimburse awardees’ expenses for transportation, accommodations, and meals for one or more on-site visits to Northwestern University Libraries.

The deadline to apply is 1 April 2022.
