Special Collections/Facilities Research Grants support research using materials that are otherwise not accessible and conducted at special collections at a recognized museum(s), library(ies), archive(s), university(ies), or other special facilities leading to publication or presentation.
Proposals are accepted from full-time faculty members on continuing appointment. Endowed Professors are ineligible to apply.
The maximum funding available through an SVSU Grant for Special Collections Research is $1,500; support for larger projects should be sought through the Faculty Research (Unit) Grants program. Special Collections grants can be used to supplement funds provided through external grants including grants from the museum(s), library(ies), or archive(s) that house the special collection(s) to be used.
Faculty members can receive no more than one Special Collections Grant each academic year.
