The Friends of Princeton University Library (Friends) are delighted to announce the launch of the special collections research grants program for 2023-24. This program offers researchers from around the world access to Princeton University Library’s (PUL) unique and rare collections.

Successful applicants receive a weekly stipend of $1,200, for up to four weeks - up to $4,800 - plus travel expenses. The length of the grant will depend on the applicant’s research proposal, but is ordinarily between two and four weeks. Grants can be used from May 2024 through April 2025.

Awarded to short-term research projects, the grants aim to promote scholarly use of archives, manuscripts, rare books, and other holdings of PUL Special Collections, including Mudd Library, Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, and the East Asian Library (Gest Collection).
