Scope:
Since 1933, the American Philosophical Society (APS) has awarded small grants
to scholars in order to support the cost of research leading to publication in
all areas of knowledge. In 2013–2014 the Franklin Research Grants program
awarded $463,000 to 85 scholars, and the Society expects to make a similar
number of awards in this year’s competition. The Franklin program is
particularly designed to help meet the costs of travel to libraries and
archives for research purposes; the purchase of microfilm, photocopies, or
equivalent research materials; the costs associated with fieldwork; or
laboratory research expenses.

Franklin grants are made for noncommercial research. They are not intended to
meet the expenses of attending conferences or the costs of publication. The
Society does not pay overhead or indirect costs to any institution. Grants
will not be made to replace salary during a leave of absence or earnings from
summer teaching; pay living expenses while working at home; cover the costs of
consultants or research assistants; or purchase permanent equipment such as
computers, cameras, tape recorders, or laboratory apparatus.

Special Programs Within the Franklin Research Grants:
APS/British Academy Fellowship for Research in London: 
In collaboration with the British Academy, the APS offers an exchange
postdoctoral fellowship for a minimum of one and a maximum of two months’
research in the archives and libraries of London during 2015. This award
includes travel expenses between the United States and the United Kingdom and
a monthly subsistence paid by the APS. Candidates should specify that they are
asking for the British Academy Fellowship and apply by October 1; applicants
not selected for the British Academy Fellowship will be considered for a
Franklin Research Grant. 

APS/Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities Fellowship for Research
in Edinburgh: 
In collaboration with the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities
(IASH) at the University of Edinburgh, the APS offers a visiting fellowship of
between two and four months for research in Edinburgh in the calendar year
2015 in any aspect of the humanities and social sciences. To maximize the
benefits of the fellowship, applicants are strongly encouraged to schedule
their visit to overlap with one of the two main teaching semesters
(January–March and September–December). This award includes travel expenses
between the United States and the United Kingdom, a private office, library
and research facilities at the IASH, and a monthly subsistence paid by the
APS. Travel expenses and the monthly subsistence amount will not exceed a
maximum of $6,000. Candidates should specify that they are asking for the IASH
Fellowship and apply by October 1; applicants not selected for the IASH
Fellowship will be considered for a Franklin Research Grant. Further
information about the IASH, including current research themes, is available at
http://www.iash.ed.ac.uk/.

Eligibility:
Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of
doctoral character and quality. Ph.D. candidates are not eligible to apply,
but the Society is particularly interested in supporting the work of young
scholars who have recently received the doctorate. Independent scholars and
faculty members at all four-year and two-year research and non-research
institutions are welcome to apply provided that all eligibility guidelines are
met. American citizens and residents of the United States may use their
Franklin awards at home or abroad. Foreign nationals not affiliated with a
U.S. institution must use their Franklin awards for research in the United
States. Applicants who have previously received a Franklin grant may reapply
after an interval of two years. 

Awards:
Funding is offered up to a maximum of $6,000. Grants are not retroactive.
Grants are payable to the individual applicant. Franklin 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.

Deadlines:
For applications and two letters of support: 
October 1, for a January 2015 decision for work in February 2015 through
January 2016.
December 1, for a March 2015 decision for work in April 2015 through January
2016.
It is the applicant’s responsibility to verify that all materials, including
the required two letters of support, reached the Society on time; contact
Linda Musumeci, Director of Grants and Fellowships, at LMusumeci at amphilsoc.org
or 215-440-3429.

Requirements:
Reports are due no later than one month after completion of the work for which
the award was made. Instructions will be provided with notification of an
award.

Application:
The online application portal may be accessed at
www.amphilsoc.org/grants/franklin.

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