About the funding:
A major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has allowed the Schlesinger Library to launch the Long 19th Amendment Project interrogating the centennial of American women’s suffrage. The grant will fund up to three eight-week residencies each June–July in 2019, 2020, and 2021 for researchers doing advanced work on the gender and suffrage, voting rights, citizenship, or other related topics. Successful projects will draw in meaningful ways on Schlesinger Library collections. The stipend for each award is $15,000.
We will consider applications from clusters of two or three researchers as well as from individuals. Such collaborations could produce a range of materials, from co-authored books and articles, to course syllabi, to datasets or interview transcripts, to podcasts and video modules.
