The purpose of these grants is to foster research and/or exploration that involves travel as part of the project. There are no application forms.  What is required are an applicants resume and a brief description of the project including the reason financial assistance is needed, a budget and the dates of travel. Grants are made each year to persons with projects that involve intelligent travel and exploration. The travel must be intimately involved with the research and/or exploration.  The Fund does not offer scholarships and does not pay for travel unless it is intimately involved with the project. For instance, the fund will not pay for travel for someone who wants to spend time studying in a foreign city. The Grants Committee meets periodically to decide awards. Total Grant(s) are limited to $ 10,000 per year.


The deadline for submission of a grant application is end of February each year and award decisions are made in April.
