These funding programs award grants to scholars engaged in projects studying Congress, politics, or policy issues. The Dole Archive and Special Collections at the Dole Institute of Politics houses Senator Bob Dole’s extensive collections which include his 36-year career in the House and Senate. While in residence, the Research Fellow and Travel Grant awardees will use these collections, which provide extensive documentation on a wide range of legislative, historical, and policy issues.
Graduate students and post-doctoral scholars are eligible to apply for this $2,500 award which will support substantial contributions to the study of Congress, politics, or policy issues on a national or international scale. The fellow will be required to conduct research at the Dole Archive for a period of 1-3 weeks between July 1, 2013, and June 30, 2014. The deadline to apply is March 15, 2013, with notification by April 15, 2013.
The Travel Grant program is intended to defray costs associated with research-related travel to the Dole Institute. This program offers reimbursements of up to $750 to undergraduate and graduate students, post-doctoral researchers, and independent scholars. Awards may be used after July 1, 2013. There is no deadline to apply and applications will be considered until funds are exhausted.
