Phillips Fund Grant for Native American Research

Scholarship Description

The Phillips Fund of the American Philosophical Society provides grants for research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada. The grants are intended for such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants fees but not for the purchase of books or permanent equipment. The committee prefers to support the work of younger scholars, who have received the doctorate. Applications are also accepted from graduate students, for research on masters theses or doctoral dissertations. The committee sometimes approves two awards to the same person within a five-year period. The average award is about $2,500; grants do not exceed $3,000. Grants are given for one year following the date of the award. Grants are taxable income, but the Society is not required to report payments. It is recommended that grant recipients discuss their reporting obligations with their tax advisors.
