Subject: APS Grant and Fellowship Programs for Linguists


Franklin Research Grants

Scope
This is a program of small grants to scholars intended to support the cost
of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge. The Franklin
program is particularly designed to help meet the cost of travel to
libraries and archives for research purposes; the purchase of microfilm,
photocopies or equivalent research materials; the costs associated with
fieldwork; or laboratory research expenses.

Eligibility
Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of
doctoral character and quality. Pre-doctoral graduate students are not
eligible, but the Society is especially interested in supporting the work
of young scholars who have recently received the doctorate.

Award
From $1,000 to $6,000.

Deadlines
October 1, December 1; notification in February and April.

Further information and application forms may be found at the American
Philosphical Society's website, www.amphilsoc.org/grants.

Lewis and Clark Fund for Exploration and Field Research

Scope
The Lewis and Clark Fund encourages exploratory field studies for the
collection of specimens and data and to provide the imaginative stimulus
that accompanies direct observation. Applications are invited from
disciplines with a large dependence on field studies, such as archeology,
anthropology, biology, ecology, geography, geology, linguistics, and
paleontology, but grants will not be restricted to these fields.

Eligibility
Grants will be available to doctoral students who wish to participate in
field studies for their dissertations or for other purposes. Master’s
candidates and undergraduates are not eligible.

Award
Grants will depend on travel costs but will ordinarily be in the range of
several hundred dollars to about $5,000.

Deadline
March 15; notification in June.

Further information and application forms may be found at the American
Philosphical Society's website, www.amphilsoc.org/grants.

Library Resident Research Fellowships

Scope
The Library Resident Research fellowships support research in the Society's
collections, which contain materials in American Indian languages and
anthropology, including the papers of Franz Boas.

Eligibility
Applicants must demonstrate a need to work in the Society's collections for
a minimum of one month and a maximum of three months. Applicants in any
relevant field of scholarship may apply. Candidates whose normal place of
residence is farther away than a 75-mile radius of Philadelphia will be
given some preference. Applicants do not need to hold the doctorate,
although Ph.D. candidates must have passed their preliminary examinations.

Stipend
$2,000 per month.

Deadline
March 1, notification in May.

Further information and application forms may be found at the American
Philosphical Society's website, www.amphilsoc.org/grants.

Phillips Fund Grants for Native American Research

Scope
For research in Native American linguistics and ethnohistory, focusing on
the continental United States and Canada. Given for a maximum of one year
from date of award to cover travel, tapes, and informants' fees.

Eligibility
Applicants may be graduate students pursuing either a master’s or a
doctoral degree; post-doctoral applicants are also eligible.

Award
From $1,000 to $3,000.

Deadline
March 1; notification in May.

Further information and application forms may be found at the American
Philosphical Society's website, www.amphilsoc.org/grants.

Sabbatical Fellowship for the Humanities and Social Sciences

Eligibility

colleges in the United States who have been granted a sabbatical/research
year but for whom financial support from the home institution is available
for only part of the year. Candidates must not have had a financially
supported leave at any time subsequent to September 1, 2004. The doctoral
degree must have been conferred no later than 1999 and no earlier than 1986.

Stipend
$30,000 to $40,000 for the second half of an awarded sabbatical year.

Deadline
