Faculty Travel Grants

Newberry Library

The Newberry Library in Chicago is a rich resource for scholars in the humanities. To help faculty members at ACM and GLCA colleges take advantage of this resource, the ACM offers modest travel grants.

Faculty at ACM and GLCA colleges are welcome to make short visits to get acquainted with the Newberry's collection. Such a visit would be particularly useful for those interested in directing the Newberry Seminar: Research in the Humanities, or who want to investigate research possibilities at the library.

ACM travel grants cover two nights lodging at a moderately priced hotel in downtown Chicago. Applications consist of a vita and a proposal that outlines the applicant's goals for the research and its suitability to the Newberry's collection. A limited number of grants are available; applications are accepted on a rolling basis.

For more information contact Michael Vertovec, ACM Special Projects Coordinator.
