The Archives of the History of American Psychology at The University of Akron invites applications for two grants that give scholars access to the archives for their research:
The J.R. Kantor Fellowship, a $1,000 grant to support archives research by a psychologist or other applicant who has earned a doctorate within the last five years; and
The Paul T. Mountjoy Graduate Research Grant, which provides up to $1,000 in travel assistance for graduate student research at the archives.
The proposal deadline for both grants is May 30. Winners will be announced by June 30, and funds must be used within 12 months of receiving the grants. Grant winners will have full use of archives resources, such as records of organizations, papers of individual psychologists, psychological instruments and apparatus, films, photographs and books.
The J.R. Kantor award--which honors the late Jacob Robert Kantor, a longtime psychology professor and history scholar at Indiana University--assists scholars with travel and living expenses. If no applicant is considered eligible for it in any one year, the stipend could be added to the next offering. The travel grant program honors the late behavioral psychologist Paul T. Mountjoy, PhD--Kantor's former student--and is made possible by the Foundation for Behavioral Resources. Graduate students enrolled across all types of doctoral programs may apply.
