JFK Library Hemingway Research Grants

The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation provides funds to scholars and students interested in researching the Ernest Hemingway Collection. The grants (up to $5,000) are intended to help defray travel, living, and other research expenses. Grant applications are evaluated on the basis of: expected utilization of the Hemingway Collection; the project's contributions to Hemingway and/or related studies; and applicants' qualifications. Preference is given to dissertation research, although all proposals are welcome and receive careful consideration.

The deadline for applications for 2017 is November 15th. Applications must be time-stamped or postmarked by the November 15th deadline. Awards will be announced in mid-December. Applications received after the closing date will be returned and may be resubmitted for the following grant cycle.

To learn more about the Hemingway Collection's holdings, please consult their online finding aid, or contact Dr. Hilary Justice, Hemingway Program Specialist, at hilary.justice@nara.gov or 617.514.1530.
