More than $6,000 in fellowships and awards will be offered by the Charles Redd Center for Western Studies at Brigham Young University for research on the history of the Mountain West.
Thomas G. Alexander, director of the center, said the funding will be divided among four programs: a summer fellowship open to any qualified researcher, a summer grant open to students, a manuscript competition, and a fellowship for faculty."These grants and fellowships are designed to enhance the study of history in the late 19th century and the 20th century in the Mountain West states of Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Nevada, Arizona and New Mexico," Alexander said.
The summer fellowship is open to applicants qualified to do research in the humanities or social-behavioral sciences and includes a stipend of $1,500 plus up to $1,500 in research support. Deadline for application is Feb. 1, 1990.
The grant for students in upper-division and graduate areas involves $1,000 per research program and can be used for any worthy project including preparation of seminar papers, theses and dissertations.
Deadline for application is March 1, 1990.
The manuscript competition involves a $500 prize plus guaranteed publication. Entries must be unpublished and be between 100 and 200 double-spaced typewritten pages. Application deadline is May 1, 1990.
The faculty fellowship, involving a stipend of up to $1,500, is open to BYU faculty only. Deadline for application is April 1, 1990.
