Scope:
The Phillips Fund of the American Philosophical Society provides grants for
research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of
studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada.
Grants are not made for projects in archaeology, ethnography,
psycholinguistics, or for the preparation of pedagogical materials. The
committee distinguishes ethnohistory from contemporary ethnography as the
study of cultures and culture change through time. The grants are intended for
such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants' fees but not for the
purchase of books or permanent equipment. 

Eligibility:
The committee prefers to support the work of younger scholars who have
received the doctorate. Applications are also accepted from graduate students
for research on master’s theses or doctoral dissertations. 
The committee sometimes approves two awards to the same person within a
five-year period.

Award and Duration:
The average award is about $2,500; grants do not exceed $3,500. Grants are
given for one year following the date of the award. Grants are taxable income,
but the Society is not required to report payments. It is recommended that
grant recipients discuss their reporting obligations with their tax advisors. 

Deadline and Notification:
Applications and letters of support are due by March 1 (Monday, March 2, in
2015). It is the applicant's responsibility to verify that all materials,
including the two required letters, reached the Society on time; send an email
inquiry to Linda Musumeci, Director of Grants and Fellowships, at
LMusumeci at amphilsoc.org or call 215-440-3429. Notification is sent in May.

Requirements:
Recipients of awards are expected to provide the American Philosophical
Society Library with a brief formal report and copies of any tape recordings,
transcriptions, microfilms, etc., acquired in the process of the grant-funded
research. The materials will be made available to scholars using the Library’s
collections.

Application:
Access to the online application may be found at: 
www.amphilsoc.org/grants/phillips

All questions should be directed to Linda Musumeci, Director of Grants and
Fellowships, LMusumeci at amphilsoc.org, 215-440-3429.
