The American Friends of the HAB offers travel grants of up to $1,500 to assist young US Citizens (or permanent US Residents) who are in the process of writing dissertations based on the rich collections of the Herzog August Bibliothek. Students may either apply directly or be nominated by their doctoral advisers. The choice of successful applicants is made by the Executive Committee of the American Friends. Competition is open to US students in all the fields in which the HAB has significant holdings. The travel grants may be used in conjunction with a doctoral fellowship from the library. The quickest and easiest way to request an application form by e-mail is to contact Prof. Gerhild Scholz Williams (Washington University, St Louis). The applicant’s stay at the HAB made possible by the travel grant is expected to last for at least four weeks in order to allow enough time for work with the collection. The Application should include a travel budget detailing specific amounts for air and/or rail travel. There are no deadlines.
