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 (from a total pool of $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 2018 is November 1st. 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.
