JFK Library Hemingway Research Grants

The JFK Library's Hemingway Research Grants are on hiatus for 2021. Applications for the 2022 grants cycle will be accepted in the Fall of 2021, with awards announced in January, 2022. 

The John F. Kennedy Library Foundation provides funds to scholars and students interested in researching the Ernest Hemingway Collection. The grants (from a total pool of $7,500) 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 is November 1st of each year . Applications must be time-stamped or postmarked by the November 1st deadline. Awards will be announced in January. Applications received after the closing date will be returned and may be resubmitted for the following grant cycle.
