The Oregon State University Libraries Special Collections and Archives Research Center (SCARC) invites applications for its Resident Scholar Program.

Stipends of $2,500 per month renewable once for a total of two months (with a total maximum grant award of $5,000) 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. The deadline for submitting proposals is April 30, 2019.
