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. However, the foundation is concerned about the preservation of all research materials, and has sponsored several workshops and out-reach efforts of the Council for the Preservation of Anthropological Records (CoPAR). We encourage individuals not meeting HAP requirements to review CoPAR's "Guide to Preserving Anthropological Records" for useful tips on how to care for their personal and professional materials.
