 Institution/Organization: American Philosophical Society 
Department:  
Web Address: http://www.amphilsoc.org/ 

Level: PhD 

Duties: Research
 
Specialty Areas: Anthropological Linguistics; General Linguistics; Historical Linguistics 
 

Description:

The Lewis and Clark Fund (initially supported by the Stanford Ascherman/Baruch 
Blumberg Fund for Basic Science, established by a benefaction from the late 
Stanford Ascherman, MD, of San Francisco) encourages exploratory field studies 
for the collection of specimens and data and to provide the imaginative stimulus 
that accompanies direct observation. Applications are invited from disciplines with 
a large dependence on field studies, such as linguistics, archeology, anthropology 
and others.

Eligibility:
Grants will be available to doctoral students. Applicants who have previously 
received a Lewis and Clark Fund grant may reapply after an interval of two years. 
Preference is given to applicants who have not yet been granted an award from the 
Fund. Postdoctoral fellows, master's degree candidates, and undergraduates are 
not eligible. 

Requirements:
Applicants should ask their academic advisor to write one of the two letters of 
recommendation, specifying the student's qualifications to carry out the proposed 
work and the educational content of the trip. Budgets should be limited to travel 
and related expenses, including personal field equipment. 
Proposals that are archival in nature or museum based will not normally be 
considered. The proposed work should be dissertation directed to the extent 
possible given the applicant's year in the doctoral program.
The competition is open to U.S. citizens and residents wishing to carry out 
research anywhere in the world. Foreign applicants must either be based at a U.S. 
institution or plan to carry out their work in the United States. 
When appropriate, the applicant should provide assurances that safety measures 
will be taken for potentially hazardous projects. When necessary, the applicant and 
his or her supervisor should discuss the field training that will be provided and the 
provisions for experienced supervision. Funding is contingent on successful 
applicants demonstrating that required permits and permissions have been 
secured. 

Awards:
Amounts will depend on travel costs but will ordinarily be in the range of several 
hundred dollars up to about $5,000. Grants are payable to the individual applicant. 
Lewis and Clark Fund 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.

Important Deadlines:
February 1 (Monday, February 2, in 2015) with notification in May, for work in June 
and beyond.
Letters of support are due by January 30.

It is the applicant's responsibility to verify that all materials, including the required 
two letters of support, have reached the Society on time; contact Linda Musumeci, 
Director of Grants and Fellowships, at LMusumeci at amphilsoc.org or 215-440-
3429.

Other Requirements:
Each Lewis and Clark Field Scholar will submit a brief report on his or her trip for 
archiving in the APS Library. Instructions will be provided with notification of an 
award.
