American Institute of Physics Grants to Archives
We are pleased to announce our 2013 program of Grants to Archives. The
grants are intended to make accessible records, papers, and other primary
sources which document the history of modern physics and allied fields
(such as astronomy, geophysics, and optics).
Grants can be used only to cover direct expenses connected with
preserving, inventorying, arranging, describing, or cataloging appropriate
collections. Expenses may include acid-free storage materials and staff
salary/benefits but not overhead or other indirect costs.
The 2013 grants are funded by the Friends of the Center for History of
The AIP History Center's mission is to help preserve and make known the
history of modern physics and allied fields, and the grant program
isintended to help support significant work to make original sources
accessible to researchers. Preference will accordingly be given to medium
size or larger projects for which the grant will be matched by the parent
organization or other sources.
We also offer Grants-in-Aid for
History of Modern Physics and Allied Fields (Astronomy, Geophysics, etc.)

To apply send a letter of no more than three pages describing the nature
and research significance of the collection(s), plan of work, and budget,
