Proposals for UW American Heritage Center Teaching, Research Grants Program Now Accepted

December 8, 2022

Proposals are now being accepted by the University of Wyoming’s American Heritage Center (AHC) for its Teaching and Research Grants program.

Grants, ranging from $200 to $1,500, are available to UW students, faculty, academic professionals and staff. The application deadline is Saturday, Jan. 28. Awards are typically announced in February, with funds immediately available. Funds must be spent by Dec. 31, 2023.

The grants program supports the use of AHC collections for teaching, research and community engagement activities. It offers an opportunity for faculty, staff and students to pursue independent or collaborative research projects, course development or program proposals that deploy the center’s collections in “significant and substantive ways.”

“We welcome proposals that use AHC collections to tell stories, solve problems, frame inquiries and engage communities,” AHC Director Paul Flesher says.

The AHC is UW’s home for historical manuscripts, rare books and university archives, offering unique and significant material in all formats that document the lives of people, communities, organizations and landscapes. Strengths include the American West, public policy, ranching and energy, entertainment, transportation and military history.

AHC collections support a range of inquiries, offering insights into the choices and challenges that define the human experience as well as documentation of the false starts, paths not taken and hidden histories held in archives.
