Franklin Research Grants

The American Philosophical Society’s Franklin Research Grants support the cost of research leading to publication in all areas of knowledge. Applicants are expected to have a doctorate or to have published work of doctoral character and quality. The Society is particularly interested in supporting the work of young scholars who have recently received the Ph.D.
