The Oregon State University Libraries Special Collections & Archives Research Center (SCARC) invites applications for its Resident Scholar Program.
Now in its eighth year, the Resident Scholar Program provides research grants to scholars interested in conducting work in the Special Collections & Archives Research Center. Stipends of $2,500 per month renewable for up to three months (for a total maximum grant award of $7,500) will be awarded to researchers whose proposals detail a compelling potential use of the materials held in the Center. Grant monies can be used for any purpose.
Researchers will be expected to conduct their scholarly activities while in residence at Oregon State University. Historians, librarians, graduate, doctoral or post-doctoral students and independent scholars are welcome to apply.
It is anticipated that applicants would focus their work on one of the four primary collecting areas of the Special Collections & Archives Research Center: the history of Oregon State University, natural resources in the Pacific Northwest, multiculturalism in Oregon and/or the history of science and technology in the twentieth century. Besides the renowned Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers, the history of science collections have a particular focus on nuclear history.
