Arthur L. Norberg Travel Fund

The Arthur L. Norberg Travel Fund provides short-term grants-in-aid to help
scholars with travel expenses to use archival collections at the Charles
Babbage Institute.  In January of each year we plan to award up to five
$1,000 travel grants.

The Charles Babbage Institute (CBI) is an internationally recognized
research center and archives focused on the history of information
technology.  CBI conducts major research projects; publishes books and
articles; and collects, processes, and provides open public access to the
most diverse and extensive collection of archival materials on computing,
software, and networking in the world.  CBI collections include the records
of corporations, technical and trade associations, personal papers,
industry publications, oral histories, photographs, film/video, and an
extensive reference library.  The Norberg Travel Fund is named for CBI’s
founding director, Arthur L. Norberg, and is funded by generous gifts from
his friends and colleagues.
To Apply:

Applicants should send a 2-page CV as well as a 500-word project
description that describes the overall research project, identifies the
importance of specific CBI collections, and discusses the projected outcome
(journal article, book chapter, museum exhibit, etc.).  Applicants are
strongly encouraged to examine the extensive on-line finding guides to
CBI’s 200-plus archival collections at
www.cbi.umn.edu/collections/archmss.html.  Applicants should estimate how
many days they plan to use CBI collections during their visit (travel
should generally be in the calendar year of the award).  To be eligible,
scholars will reside outside the Twin Cities metropolitan region.
Recipients will be asked to do a short write-up about their research visit
for the CBI Newsletter.

Notification of awards will be made by mid-February, and travel can
commence directly thereafter.  Questions pertaining to collection content
and access can be directed to R. Arvid Nelsen, CBI Archivist, at
nels0307 at umn.edu.  Please direct questions about the Arthur Norberg Travel
Fund to Jeffrey Yost, CBI Associate Director, yostx003 at umn.edu,
612.624.5050. For additional information, see www.cbi.umn.edu
Materials must be received by CBI no later than January 15, 2016.
