Dumbarton Oaks Byzantine Studies, Pre-Columbian Studies, and Garden and Landscape Studies

Dumbarton Oaks makes a limited number of grants to assist with scholarly projects in Byzantine Studies, Pre-Columbian Studies, and Garden and Landscape Studies. The normal range of awards is $3,000–$10,000. Support is generally for archaeological research, as well as for the recovery, recording, and analysis of materials that would otherwise be lost. Funding is typically awarded for transportation, meals, housing, vehicle rental, workmen's wages, costs of technical analysis, etc.; grants are not normally made for the purchase of computers or the salary of the principal investigator. Project grants are limited to applicants holding a doctorate or the equivalent, and are awarded on the basis of 1) ability and preparation of the principal project personnel (including knowledge of the requisite languages) and 2) interest and value of the project to the specific field of study. Before applying, applicants must contact the appropriate Director of Studies, no later than October 1, 2008, to determine if the project falls within the purview of the Project Grants.

Due: November 1, 2008
