The Army Heritage Center Foundation is accepting applications for its LTC John William Whitman Research Grant.
Through the program, grants of up to $1,750 will be awarded to unfunded independent researchers who are working on an under-explored topic in military history. Funded research is to be conducted at the U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center in Carlisle, Pennsylvania.
The funds will cover lodging and meals for any nights spent in the local area when conducting research, mileage reimbursement or airfare to the USAHEC and an allowance for photocopying. Upon submission of vouchers and receipts, the foundation will reimburse grantee for expenses related to research. Grant recipients retain intellectual property rights for the materials developed as a result of the research.
Competitive proposals should evidence a clear understanding of the existing research in the field and how the proposed work examines an underexplored topic of military history. Applicants are expected to demonstrate both an analytical and descriptive grasp of the project and an ability to use the resources of the U.S. Army Heritage and Education collection.
