The Truman Library Institute will award two Truman-Kauffman Research Fellowships (each carrying a stipend totaling $37,500) in each of the next three years to senior scholars in support of ambitious archival-based research projects examining the role of foreign aid on development, modernization, and societal reconstruction, especially in the wake of war, colonialism, and rising globalization. Of course, research projects that incorporate the Marshall Plan, the Truman Doctrine, and/or the Point Four program, are especially encouraged.
Participating scholars will receive initial research/travel stipends to conduct research in the collections of the Truman Presidential Library. The initial grant will be followed by a major non-residential fellowship award allowing scholars to make significant progress on their research and resulting publication(s). Awardees will also be asked to present their findings through the projectís public component, which will include a combination of academic conferences and public lectures, generally in the Kansas City, Missouri area. (Military, foreign policy and other experts will also be invited to participate in the projectís public programs.) Each scholar will also be expected to produce a major book on his or her research, which will be published, contingent upon the standard peer-review process, by Cambridge University Press.
