The Harry S. Truman Library Institute offers research grants of up to $2,500 to offset the cost of conducting research at their library and museum. Competitive proposals will evidence a clear understanding of the existing research on Truman’s presidency and legacy and how the proposed work adds significantly to that body of literature. Applicants are expected to demonstrate both an analytical and descriptive grasp of the independent research project and its centrality to scholarship on the Truman era.

Graduate students and postdoctoral scholars are particularly encouraged to apply, but applications from others engaged in advanced research will also be considered. Preference will be given to projects that have application to enduring public policy and foreign policy issues and that have a high probability of being published or publicly disseminated in some other way. The potential contribution of a project to an applicant’s development as a scholar will also be considered. An individual may receive no more than two Research Grants in a five-year period.

Max award of $2,500 to cover lodging, meals, travel, and photocopying materials.
