In support of University of Minnesota Libraries’ priority of anti-racist work and our guiding principles of inclusivity, diversity, equity and accessibility, the 2022 award will prioritize applicants who identify as people of color, as well as those who identify as members of groups historically marginalized in academia and archives. This call for applications is open to all, through September 1, 2021.

The Immigration History Research Center Archives (IHRCA) offers Grant-in-Aid Awards to support a visit to Andersen Library at the University of Minnesota in order to conduct research in the IHRCA collections. Awards are available through co-sponsorship by the Immigration History Research Center and the IHRCA through the ethnic and general funds. The award is for travel and research-related expenses.

This award is open to researchers of all types and levels of training, and is intended to support a research visit of 5 days. Typically, awards are for $1,000.00, and four awards are given each year. Grant-in-Aid Awards are intended to help support the expenses of people based outside of the Minneapolis-St. Paul (Minnesota, USA) metro area, and to be used in the 2022 calendar year.
