Alyce Hunley Whayne Visiting Researchers Travel Award
Kenneth Spencer Research Library, University of Kansas, announces the Alyce Hunley Whayne Visiting Researcher/Scholar travel grant for research focusing on the African American experience.
The Spencer Library documents the African American experience in Kansas and the region through extensive collections of personal papers and the records of organizations, businesses, and churches.
Travel grants are available to any faculty member, undergraduate, graduate student, or independent researcher living outside a 100 mile radius from Lawrence, Kansas, who documents a research project requiring the use of materials held by the Spencer Library related to this topic. Grant money may be used for travel, photoduplication, and living expenses while pursuing research at the library. The maximum award amount available is $750.
Award recipients will be asked to give an informal presentation on their research while in residence.
