The Libraries and Archives Section of the American Folklore Society offers stipends of up to $500 in honor of the late Polly Grimshaw, curator of the folklore collection at Indiana University Libraries. The Grimshaw Prize is intended to support folklore or ethnomusicology projects with a significant connection to libraries and/or archives.

Examples of eligible projects:

  • support for travel costs to enable on-site research in a library or archive collection
  • research into problems, issues, or methods in information organization and retrieval in folklore/ethnomusicology, including libraries, archives, collections,  and related topics; or travel to AFS to present the results of such research

Students, professionals, or researchers in folklore/ethnomusicology are welcome to apply for the Grimshaw Prize.  Primary consideration is given to students enrolled in folklore graduate curricula and professional folklorists.  Applications will consist of a succinct narrative describing the project and its relationship to libraries and/or archives; a detailed budget; a resume or curriculum vitae; and one letter of recommendation.

Applications should be sent to:

Kristi Young Bell
1160 HBLL

Provo, UT 84602

The deadline for submissions is October 20, 2015.
