number of research grants for scholars and students in the range of $200 to $1,000 to help defray living, travel, and related costs incurred while doing research in the Ernest Hemingway Collection. Grant applications are evaluated on the basis of expected utilization of the Hemingway Collection, the degree to which they address research needs in Hemingway and related studies, and the qualifications of applicants. Preference is given to dissertation research by Ph.D. candidates working in newly opened or relatively unused portions of the Collection, but all proposals are welcome and will receive careful consideration.
The postmark deadline for applications is November 1. Awards will be announced December 15. The grants will be for the next calendar year. Applications received after the closing date will be returned but may be considered the following year if revised and resubmitted.
To obtain information about the holdings of the Collection, applicants should contact the curator of the Hemingway Collection at 617- 514-1530 and also consult the Catalog of the Ernest Hemingway Collection at the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, published by G.K. Hall & Co., 1982. The two-volume catalog is available in many libraries or can be obtained along with addenda through interlibrary loan from the Kennedy Library. The Manuscripts and Outgoing Correspondence portions are currently available.
