The Alan R. Jones '50 Travel Fellowship

The Alan R. Jones '50 Travel Fellowship offers financial support to Grinnell College students to travel to conduct research on a topic of American history connected to their work in a history course, an independent study, or a Mentored Advanced Project (MAP). The prize honors Alan ("Al") Jones '50, a legendary professor of history at Grinnell College, whose passionate teaching, scholarship, and civic engagement left an indelible mark on the character of the College as well as generations of students. The fellowship covers travel expenses and costs directly related to research in a library, archive, museum or research collection outside of Grinnell that pertains to the history of the United States, broadly conceived. Both short trips (e.g. Iowa City or Ames) and long trips (e.g. Warsaw or Washington D.C.) will qualify for funding. The fellowship committee will issue grants four times a year, with applications due October 1, December 1, February 15, and May 1. Students may use them to conduct research during the semester, during breaks, or during the summer. Please refer to the full fellowship guidelines and use the fellowship cover sheet when submitting an application.
