Through the Library Scholars Grant Program, the Purdue University Libraries provide grants to untenured and recently-tenured Purdue professors to help them gain access to unique collections of information necessary for their research. Annual awards of up to $5,000 are made possible through the generosity of the 50th anniversary gift of the Class of 1935. The funds may be used for expenses associated with travel to archives or collections beyond Purdue. Upon completing research, grant recipients present a seminar about the information-related activities supported by the grant. Interested applicants should visit http://www.lib.purdue.edu/info/scholars/guidelines.html for further information.
The Library Scholars Grant collection includes presentation materials from the seminars and may include other research material associated with the grants.
