Schlesinger Research Support Grant

The Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America offers a variety of research grants to support new scholarship on women, gender, and sexuality.

Applications will be evaluated on the significance of the research topic and its creativity in drawing on the library's holdings.

We encourage applicants to review carefully the finding aids to our collections, and/or to contact the research services team to find out more about the scope and scale of collections relevant to your application.

For an introduction to our collections, please begin by reviewing our Research Guides by Subject and our Finding Aids.

A more thorough search of Schlesinger holdings can be accomplished through Harvard’s online catalogue, HOLLIS.

Research Support Grants

The Schlesinger Library invites scholars and other serious researchers at any career stage beyond graduate school to apply for support for their work in our collections. Grants of up to $3,000 will be given on a competitive basis. Applicants must have a doctoral degree or equivalent research and writing experience. Priority will be given to those who have demonstrated research productivity and whose projects require use of materials available only at the Schlesinger Library. The awards may be used to cover travel and living expenses, photocopies or other reproductions, and other incidental research expenses, but not for the purchase of equipment or travel to other sites for research.


  • Applications for 2020–2021 funding are currently being accepted. The deadline for submission is January 31, 2020
