Historical Archives Program (HAP)
Funding for Historical Archives Program grants has been expended for 2016, and the foundation is no longer accepting applications for the remainder of the year.
Individuals interested in applying for funding under the Historical Archives Program in 2017 are asked to submit Preliminary Inquiries starting December 2016.
The objective of the Historical Archives Program is to encourage the preservation of unpublished personal research materials of established anthropologists considered of value for research on the history of anthropology.
HAP grants (maximum $15,000) are offered to individuals, to assist senior scholars at the end of their careers (or their heirs) with the expense of preparing and transferring their unpublished research materials for archival deposit. Applicants must show evidence that arrangements have been made with an appropriate archival repository. Funds are strictly limited to covering expenses related to the basic preparation of materials for archival deposit.
Please note: Efforts to establish archival facilities, develop existing collections, or otherwise process materials already held by repositories are not eligible for funding consideration.
