Through a generous endowment provided by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to the History of Science Department and the History of Science Collections, the University of Oklahoma offers a travel fellowship program for visitors to make use of its resources for research in the History of Science. The Andrew W. Mellon Travel Fellowship Program is intended to assist scholars at both pre-doctoral and post-doctoral levels.
The program is designed to provide travel expenses and a reasonable per diem to researchers who reside outside the central Oklahoma area, and who have well-defined research projects that can be served by the holdings of the History of Science Collections. Support is available for qualifying projects for periods ranging from two to eight weeks. Although there is no limitation on the subject field of investigation, applicants must demonstrate the utility of materials in the History of Science Collections.
Fellowship projects may be scheduled for any time of the year when the Collections are open. Applicants preparing proposals are encouraged to contact the History of Science Collections Research Coordinator JoAnn Palmeri.
