The Hartman Center provides yearly Travel to Collection Grants for faculty, students, and independent scholars interested in the holdings found at the Center. The program supports research of sales, advertising and marketing history. There are three types of grants available from the Hartman Center:
The FOARE Fellowships for Outdoor Advertising Research provide $1000 in funding for up to three researchers per year. Recipients must plan research trips lasting a minimum of two weeks primarily focusing on the use of collections found in the Outdoor Advertising Archives.
The John Furr Fellowships for JWT Research provide $1000 in funding for up to three individuals per year. Recipients must plan research trips lasting a minimum of two weeks primarily using collections found in the J. Walter Thompson Archives.
The Hartman Center Travel Grants provide up to $750 to support those individuals whose research focus includes the use of any Hartman Center collections and whose research trips may last any length of time.

We strongly encourage applicants to speak with the Reference Archivist at the Hartman Center before applying for a grant. Past applications have demonstrated that those who spoke with the archivist about their projects produced stronger applications. We are happy to help identify potential collections and books of which you may not otherwise be aware.
