  • The Mary Lily Research Grants are for research using the collections held by the Sallie Bingham Center. Grant money may be used for travel to the Duke University's Rare Book, Manuscript, and Special Collections Library, costs of copying pertinent archival resources, and living expenses while pursuing research here. We strongly encourage applicants to speak with the public services librarian before applying for the grant. Past applications have demonstrated that those who spoke with a staff member about their projects produced stronger applications. We can lead you to potential sources of which you may not otherwise be aware. Grants will cover transportation expenses (including air, train or bus ticket charges; car rental; mileage using a personal vehicle; and parking fees), accommodations, and meals.
