Small grants for research in the history of modern physics and allied sciences (such as astronomy, geophysics, and optics) and their social interactions. They can be used only to reimburse direct expenses connected with the work. Grants will be given only to reimburse: expenses for travel and subsistence to use the resources of the Center’s Niels Bohr Library in College Park, Maryland; expenses including travel and subsistence to tape-record oral history interviews or microfilm archival materials, with a copy for deposit in the Library. Applicants should either be working toward a graduate degree in the history of science (in which case they should include a letter of reference from their thesis adviser), or show a record of publication in the field. To apply, send by mail or email a vitae, a letter of no more than two pages describing your research project, and a brief budget showing the expenses for which support is requested to the attn of Spencer Weart at the Center’s address.
