The Immigration History Research Center Archives (IHRCA) offers Grant-in-Aid Awards to support a visit in order to conduct research in our collections. Awards are available through co-sponsorship from the Immigration History Research Center and the IHRCA through the ethnic and general funds. This award is open to scholars of all levels, including independent scholars, and supports a research visit of 5 days or more. Grant-in-Aid Awards are intended to help defray expenses of visiting scholars from abroad, and for those in the U.S.A. who are based outside of the Minneapolis-St. Paul (MN) metro area. Awards are made on a competitive basis, and for research specific to the IHRCA’s collections.
