Friends of the Princeton University Library Research Grants

Each year, the Friends of the Princeton University Library offer short-term
Library Research Grants to promote scholarly use of the Library’s special
collections. The award is $1,000 per week (up to four weeks) plus
transportation costs.

Applications will be considered for scholarly use of archives, manuscripts,
rare books, and other rare and unique holdings of the Department of Rare Books
and Special Collections, including the Seeley G. Mudd Manuscript Library; as
well as rare books in Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, and in the East
Asian Library (Gest Collection).  Special grants are awarded in several areas:
the Seeger Center for Hellenic Studies supports a limited number of library
fellowships in Hellenic Studies, the Elmer Adler Fund supports research in the
graphic arts, and the Cotsen Children’s Library supports research in its
collection on aspects of children’s literature. The Maxwell Fund supports
research on materials dealing with Portuguese-speaking cultures. The Sid
Lapidus ’59 Research Fund for Studies of the Age of Revolution and the
