Marilyn B. Young Research Grant

marilynyoung_400From 2018 onward, the Roosevelt Institute for American Studies (RIAS) will offer the Marilyn B. Young Research Grant, which aims to support research on the history of US foreign policy and especially its overlap with social and civil rights history. The grant is offered to scholars who are interested in using the RIAS holdings and collections to further their research.

The travel grant honors the memory of the late Marilyn Young, who was a leading historian of American foreign relations and professor of history at New York University. She was also a long-time RIAS friend and supporter, and her work inspired generations of scholars in Europe and in the United States. The maximum grant available is €600 and the financial support is meant to cover travel expenses and accommodation in Middelburg. The minimum period of research to be spent at the RIAS is one week and applications should be submitted every year before 25 April, Marilyn Young’s birthday.
