Library Research Grants

· The Friends of the Princeton University Library offer short-term Library Research Grants to promote scholarly use of the research collections. The Program in Hellenic Studies with the support of the Stanley J. Seeger Fund also supports a limited number of library fellowships in Hellenic studies, and the Cotsen Children’s Library supports research in its collection on aspects of children’s books.

Awards are also made from the Sid Lapidus '59 Research Fund for Studies of the Age of Revolution and the Enlightenment in the Atlantic World. This award covers work utilizing materials pertinent to this topic donated by Mr. Lapidus as well as other also relevant materials in the collections.

The Maxwell Fund is also available to promote research on materials related to the Portuguese-speaking world, broadly defined (former colonies in Asia and Africa as well as Brazil and Portugal).
[N.B. Those eligible for the Maxwell Fund are: Princeton undergraduates, Princeton graduate students, and graduate students at other universities.
Faculty and other independent scholars are not eligible for Maxwell grants.]

Particulars are available at the Library Research Grants page.
