The Roosevelt Institute supports a program of small grants-in-aid, not to exceed $2,500, in support of research on the "Roosevelt years" or clearly related subjects.  Grants are awarded annually. The deadline for grant submissions has been changed to November 15. Funds are awarded for the sole purpose of helping to defray living, travel, and related expenses incurred while conduction research at the Roosevelt Library. The grants program is particularly designed to encourage younger scholars to expand our knowledge and understanding of the Roosevelt period. Applicants should write:

Chairman, Grants Committee 

Roosevelt Institute 

4079 Albany Post Road 

Hyde Park, NY 12538

Criteria for Grants-In-Aid

Applicants are required to submit to the Chairman of the Grants Committee of the Institute an original grant application and one copy detailing the nature and scope of their research project, the names and institutions of three references, and a budget outlining the amount needed for travel, lodging, and any other research expenses.Each application is evaluated by the Library's archival staff to ascertain that there is material at the Library appropriate for the research topic, approximately how long such research might be expected to take, and per diem.

A panel of scholars and Institute Board members reviews the application, letters of reference, and the Library information sheets to determine the merits of each research topic and its potential contribution to scholarship. After appropriate discussion, a vote of the panel is taken: a) to fund or not, and b) whether to fund at the level requested by the applicant or the amount estimated by the Library's archival staff. Panel decisions are transmitted to the Executive Board of the Institute for final approval.

Letters are sent to all applicants informing them of the panel's decision. Grantees are informed that use of their grants is to occur within a year of their letter. When plans are firm, grantees are issued two checks totaling the amount of the award. One is mailed to them immediately in order to assist with travel; the other is given upon arrival at the Library when they begin their research.

Upon conclusion of their research, grantees are requested to submit a brief end-of-grant report to the Chairman of the Grants Committee; two copies of any publications resulting from their research are expected to be given to the Roosevelt Library and the Roosevelt Study Center in the Netherlands.
