TREC Short-term Travel Awards at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of American History

To encourage use of its equity-related collections, the Smithsonian's National Museum of American History offers 4 short-term travel awards for researchers to come to the Museum and use the Archives Center's 20,000 feet of archival materials. Each recipient is awarded a lump sum of $1,500 to support 10 days of research in residence.

The TREC (Travel Research in Equity Collections) award is intended for research in NMAH collections related to one or more of the following: disability; gender; LGBTQ and sexuality; and race and ethnicity. Researchers may be at any level or rank, from any institution as well as independent scholars, writers, journalists, artists, or film-makers.

Application deadline: July 15. Awards will be announced August 15. Four awards will be made each year.
