      Announcing the Elmer L. Andersen Research Scholars Program


The Elmer L. Andersen Research Scholars Program supports scholarly 
research projects using materials from the Libraries' rare and special 
collections. Named for former governor and University of Minnesota 
regent Elmer L. Andersen, the new program honors the Governor's passion 
for collecting and for expanding the use of the collections. The 
Research Scholars program is available to scholars including faculty, 
graduate, postgraduate, and independent researchers using the 
collections in the Department of Archives and Special Collections 
<http://special.lib.umn.edu/>. This program is not available to 
currently enrolled University of Minnesota graduate or undergraduate 

The program will provide annual support for up to two research projects 
that require use of one or more of the collections. Awards range from 
$500 to $2,000 and provide funds for travel, housing and other research 
related costs. The final research product (e.g., journal article, 
documentary film) must acknowledge the Libraries' support and be 
deposited with the University Libraries.
