The American Heritage Center (AHC) at the University of Wyoming offers five annual travel grants to be used by scholars. The grants are for up to $500 each and provide support for travel, food and lodging to carry out research using the AHC's collections. Subject areas include: Wyoming, the American West, transportation, conservation, water resources and the performing arts. Persons interested in such grants should complete the application at http://www.uwyo.edu/ahc/_files/grants/travel-grants-application.pdf.

We ask that each applicant also attach a brief description of the project, indicate any publication plans for the project, and which collections at the AHC will be used and how these will support the work. Applications are due April 14, 2017. Application and current resume should be sent to: Bridget Burke, Director, American Heritage Center, Dept. 3924, 1000 E. University Avenue, Laramie, WY 82071.

 The AHC is the University of Wyoming’s repository of manuscript collections, rare books, and University archives. Our collections are the raw data of humanistic and interdisciplinary research. We are the laboratory for citizens and scholars to engage with primary sources in all formats that support the creation of historical narratives, interrogate the past, build community, and pose and answer questions about human experience. The AHC holds collections of distinction, serving citizens and scholars in Wyoming and beyond. For more information about the AHC and its collections, please go to http://www.uwyo.edu/ahc/.
