Oregon State University Resident Scholar Program - Call for Applications
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com -
Contributed By: Oregon State University Libraries and Press

The Oregon State University Libraries Special Collections & Archives Research Center (SCARC) invites applications for its Resident Scholar Program (http://paulingblog.wordpress.com/2014/01/03/now-accepting-applications-for-2014-resident-scholars).

Now in its seventh year, the Resident Scholar Program provides research grants to scholars interested in conducting work in the Special Collections & Archives Research Center. Stipends of $2,500 per month renewable for up to three months (for a total maximum grant award of $7,500) will be awarded to researchers whose proposals detail a compelling potential use of the materials held in the Center. Grant monies can be used for any purpose.

Researchers will be expected to conduct their scholarly activities while in residence at Oregon State University. Historians, librarians, graduate, doctoral or post-doctoral students and independent scholars are welcome to apply. The deadline for submitting proposals is April 30, 2014.

It is anticipated that applicants would focus their work on one of the four primary collecting areas of the Special Collections & Archives Research Center: the history of Oregon State University (http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/university-history.html), 
natural resources in the Pacific Northwest (http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/natural-resources.html), 
multiculturalism in Oregon (http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/oma/index.html) and/or the history of science and technology in the twentieth century (http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/history-of-science.html). 

For 2014, proposals that focus on using the history of science and technology collections will receive highest consideration, though proposals can address use of any of the SCARC collections. Besides the renowned Ava Helen and Linus Pauling Papers, the history of science collections have a particular focus on nuclear 
history (http://guides.library.oregonstate.edu/atomic?hs=a).

Detailed information outlining the qualifications necessary for application, as well as the selection process and the conditions under which awards will be made, is available at the following location (PDF link): http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/residentscholar.pdf

Additional information on the program is available at the Resident Scholar (http://scarc.library.oregonstate.edu/residentscholar.html) homepage and profiles of past award recipients are available here (http://paulingblog.wordpress.com/tag/resident-scholar-program).
