In May 2011 the Nebraska State Historical Society will award up to three research grants of $1,000 each to support the work of scholars pursuing original research and interpretive writing on some aspect of history or archeology of Nebraska or the Great Plains. Applications must be postmarked by April 1, 2011. Projects must be completed by April 1, 2012.

Applicants from any background, including academic and public historians, graduate students, and independent researchers and writers, are welcome to apply. Preference will be given to applicants proposing to pursue previously neglected topics, or new approaches to and interpretations of previously treated topics. If more than one grant is awarded preference for one will be given to current graduate students, young scholars, or non-academic scholars whose work is not otherwise subsidized.

Grant recipients are expected to spend at least one week during the grant period in residence in Lincoln working with materials from the Nebraska State Historical Society collections. The grants are intended to support research that will lead to submission of a manuscript for possible publication in the NSHS quarterly journal, Nebraska History, or another appropriate venue, by April 1, 2012. Manuscripts should not exceed 7,500 words, and should conform to the Nebraska History Author Guidelines. Guidelines are also available by mail from Nebraska History, P.O. Box 82554, Lincoln, NE 68501-2554.

Project Criteria

  1. Suitability for meaningful research in the NSHS library, archives, historic preservation files, museum, or archeological collections.
  2. Potential to make a significant contribution to historical scholarship on a Nebraska-related topic.
  3. Potential to produce a manuscript suitable for publication in Nebraska History or a similar publication.
  4. Applicant's academic training, professional experience, publication record, or other experience suggesting that the research and the resulting article will meet the highest professional standards.
