APS Phillips Fund Grants for Native American Research
APS Phillips Fund for Native American Research
The Phillips Fund of the American Philosophical Society provides grants for research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada. Grants are not made for projects in archaeology, ethnography, psycholinguistics, or for the preparation of pedagogical materials. The committee distinguishes ethnohistory from contemporary ethnography as the study of cultures and culture change through time. The grants are intended for such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants' fees but not for the purchase of books or permanent equipment.
The committee prefers to support the work of younger scholars who have received the doctorate. Applications are also accepted from graduate students for research on masterís theses or doctoral dissertations.
The committee sometimes approves two awards to the same person within a five-year period.
Award and Duration
The average award is about $2,500; grants do not exceed $3,500. Grants are given for one year following the date of the award.
Deadline and Notification
Applications and letters of support are due by March 1. Notification is sent in May.
Recipients of awards are expected to provide the American Philosophical Society Library with a brief formal report and copies of any tape recordings, transcriptions, microfilms, etc., acquired in the process of the grant-funded research. The materials will be made available to scholars using the Libraryís collections.
