University of Oklahoma - Carl Albert Center - Visiting Scholars Program

Amount Note:

Grants range up to $1,000 with a $500 limit for graduate students. Funding is meant to defray travel costs incurred during a personal visit to the archives.

The Carl Albert Center accepts applications on a rolling basis for its Visiting Scholars Research Grant Program. The grant provides funding for on-site research in the Congressional Collections to support the creation of monographs, journal articles, books, theses, and dissertations. Primary emphasis is placed on research proposals centered on the U.S. Congress and its members, but given the wide-ranging subject matter of the archival holdings at the Center, other topics will be considered.

The Carl Albert Congressional Research and Studies Center is a unique and nonpartisan institution that strengthens representative democracy through scholarship, learning, and service.  Established in 1979 by the Oklahoma State Regents for Higher Education and the Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma, the center is a living tribute to the ideals, leadership, and accomplishments of the Honorable Carl Albert, native Oklahoman, University of Oklahoma alumnus, Rhodes Scholar, 46th Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
