The Helmerich Center for American Research offers several travel to collections grants to support research projects that require on-site use of its collections. The travel grants are $500 per week for a maximum length of two weeks.
Fellows are expected to be active researchers at the center, and they are encouraged to participate in the intellectual life of the center and The University of Tulsa. A brief report will be due within 30 days of completion of the travel grant, and a copy of any publications resulting from the research should also be sent to the center.
To apply, please submit the following:
- Research proposal of up to 1,000 words, specifying the materials to be consulted at the center.
- Curriculum vitae, not to exceed three pages
- One letter of reference
