An independent committee reviews each application based on the applicant's research topic and the availability of relevant material in the RAC's collections. Awards are made to individuals. Institutions are not eligible to apply. The grant does not support research at other institutions, and it does not provide general tuition support. Application to the grant-in-aid program is open to U.S. citizens and citizens of foreign countries. Certain U.S. Government requirements will apply to non-U.S. citizens.
All applicants, with the exception of applicants for dissertation fellowships, must be post-doctorates or independent scholars with a substantial record of achievement. United States citizens and foreign nationals are eligible to apply. Individuals who have previously received a Ransom Center fellowship are eligible to reapply after one year has passed.
Grant recipients must commence their research at the Center within one year of being notified of the award. Grant recipients are requested to submit a short report on their research at the Center. Edited versions of or excerpts from these reports may be used in the Center's publications. Recipients also are asked to provide the Center with a copy of any publication resulting from research conducted as a result of the grant. Reimbursement of up to $5000 will be made upon receipt of original expense receipts following the completion of the grant recipient's research visit.
