Historical Archives Program (HAP)

The objective of the Historical Archives Program is to encourage the preservation of unpublished personal research materials of established anthropologists considered of value for research on the history of anthropology.

Can I apply for funds to organize my collection now, but not archive it right away?

No. All materials being prepared for archival deposit with HAP funding must be deposited with the intended repository by the project end date, as stipulated in the HAP grant agreement.

I'm not a "senior scholar," but have materials I would like to archive. Can I apply to the HAP?

Unfortunately, no.  The Historical Archives Program has limited resources and must restrict its funding to preserving those research materials that are most at-risk: namely, personal research collections at the end of the researcher's career.
