A major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has allowed the Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study, Harvard University to launch the Long 19th Amendment Project, interrogating the centennial of American women's suffrage. As a part of this project, the inaugural Mellon-Schlesinger Research Grant competition is now open.

Currently enrolled graduate students are not eligible for these awards and should instead apply for Schlesinger Library's Dissertation Support Grants. 

Full application requirements are available on Schlesinger Library's Grant Application Portal: https://goo.gl/TrGoid

Applications must be received by Thursday, Nov. 15, 2018. Awards will be announced in late January 2019.
