Each year, the Friends of the Princeton University Library offers short-term Library Research Grants to promote scholarly use of the Princeton University Library special collections. Applications will be considered for scholarly use of archives, manuscripts, rare books, and other rare and unique holdings in Special Collections, including Mudd Library; as well as rare books in Marquand Library of Art and Archaeology, and in the East Asian Library (Gest Collection).

These grants are meant to help defray expenses incurred in traveling to and residing in Princeton during the tenure of the grant. The length of the grant will depend on the applicant’s research proposal but is ordinarily between two and four weeks. Library Research Grants can be used from May of the year they are awarded through the following April.

Doctoral students, recent doctorates, tenured and non-tenured faculty, and independent scholars are all welcome to apply. 

The Program in Hellenic Studies, with assistance from the Stanley J. Seeger Fund, also supports a limited number of Library grants for scholars working on research projects that draw on rare and unique materials in the Hellenic collections at the Princeton University Library.
