NYPL Launches LGBT Visiting Scholars Program

The New York Public Library—home to one of the largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) collections in the U.S.—has announced the creation of the LGBT Visiting Scholars Program.

Created with the generous support of LGBT Committee Ambassador Martin Duberman and his partner Eli Zal, the program enables the Library to provide travel stipends to New York City for up to three visiting scholars to do LGBT research in the Library’s collections. Ranging in size from $1,000 to $8,500, the awards will be limited to emerging scholars or those who are unaffiliated with an academic institution. The application deadline is January 31, 2009.
