The Historical Society of Southern California has announced the application guidelines for the society’s small grants program for summer 2009. The grants, known as Haynes Research Stipends, are designed to support scholars who have short-term financial needs while they research topics related to Los Angeles and/or southern California.
From the HSSC’s website:
The Historical Society particularly encourages younger scholars, doctoral candidates at the dissertation stage, scholars in smaller local institutions, faculty from out-of-state institutions working on projects that would benefit from a brief visit for research, secondary school faculty who need summer awards to do research, retired scholars who no longer have ties to their former institutions, and unaffiliated scholars who need modest financial support for their research so they can continue to publish.
The grants are for a period of one to four weeks at a stipend of $400 per week. The grants may be used to supplement other grants and to pay for a variety of expenses related to research on Los Angeles and/or southern California.
The deadline for applications is April 1, 2009. A committee of five will review the applications. The Historical Society of Southern California thanks the John Randolph Haynes and Dora Haynes Foundation for recognizing the need for such a program. Awards will be announced on or before May 30, 2009.
Application guidelines and procedures are outlined on the website.
