Greater Midwest Foodways Alliance in collaboration with Culinary Historians of Chicago and with funding from the Julia Child Foundation for Gastronomy and the Culinary Arts is pleased to announce financial support for the study of Midwestern foods and food-related institutions. This support is offered as three American Midwest Foodways Scholar's Grants: One grant is for $3,000, a second is $1,500, and a third is $500. Each is intended to help underwrite the research of academics and other investigators who intend to publish their findings in books, articles, videos or other media. The awards are merit based and unrestricted. They can be used to support fieldwork, library visits, conference attendance, or other activities related to the applicant's proposed project. Applicants specify the level of funding for which they wish to apply. However, the committee, at its discretion, will choose the level of grant to make in its individual awards, i.e. a request for a larger amount may receive a lesser sum.
