Currey Travel Award

Applications are due May 7th at 5:00 pm EST.

Named for former Chairman of the Board Bradley Currey, Jr., the program is open to undergraduates in all years of the Honors program of the Emory College of Arts and Sciences, or any upper level student who is conducting original research.

Successful applicants will receive grants intended to help defray the costs of traveling to conduct original research in an archival repository. The amount of the award will be based on the costs associated with travel. Students doing research in Georgia or the greater Atlanta area are welcome to apply.

All grant recipients must complete a consultation with Rose Library archivists.

Applicants must submit a short (1-2 page) research proposal and a letter of support from a faculty member, librarian or archivist. Letters of support may be submitted separately, but both the proposal and letter should be sent to Proposals should include the institution(s) they plan to visit, specific materials they will consult, and why these materials are essential to their research.

Original research topics should be developed in collaboration with a faculty mentor. After their research trips, students will be invited to submit a short article detailing their experience doing archival research for inclusion in a Rose Library publication.
