1999 LARRY J. HACKMAN RESEARCH RESIDENCY PROGRAM

FUNDED BY THE HENRY LUCE FOUNDATION

RESEARCH  RESIDENCY  PROGRAM
The New York State Archives and the Archives Partnership Trust announce the availability of  the 1999 awards for qualified applicants to pursue research using the vast resources of the New York State Archives.  The Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Program is intended to support advanced work in New York State history, government or public policy.  

APPLICANT/PROJECT  ELIGIBILITY
Applicants working on doctoral dissertations and those at the postdoctoral level are particularly encouraged to apply, but any proposal for advanced research will be considered.  Projects involving alternative uses of the Archives, such as background research for multimedia projects, exhibits, documentary films, and historical novels, are also eligible.  The topic or area of study must draw, at least in part, on the holdings of the New York State Archives.  Preference will be given to projects:  (1) that have application to enduring public policy issues, particularly in New York State, (2) that rely on holdings that have been little used and are not available electronically or on microfilm, and (3) that have a high probability of publication or other public dissemination.

AWARDS
Award amounts are greater for in-depth research over a substantial period of time but generally fall in the $1,500 to $2,000-a-month range.   They are intended to defray costs of travel, living expenses, and other research-related costs, while also rewarding scholarship, creativity, and promise.
