Printer-Friendly Version Printer-Friendly Version

Through a generous gift the Rockefeller Archive Center has available funds to support short-term research in the Paul Ehrlich Collection at the Archive Center. The Ehrlich Collection is the largest and most important body of original and facsimile materials documenting the life and scientific-medical research program of Nobel Laureate Paul Ehrlich (1854-1915). Certain documents are available in English translations.

Prospective applicants are required to contact the Archive Center with an initial description of the applicant's research. This will help applicants to determine the extent of related materials.

Application to the Ehrlich grant program may be made at any time and, if judged worthy, awards will be made within a month of the receipt of the applicant's two letters of recommendation. Grant recipients must commence their research at the Center within one year of being notified of the award. Application to this program is open to U.S. citizens and citizens of foreign countries. Certain U.S. Government requirements will apply to non-U.S. citizens. Grant recipients are requested to submit a short report on their research at the Center. Edited versions of or excerpts from these reports may be used in the Center's publications. Recipients also are asked to provide the Center with a copy of any publication resulting from research conducted as a result of the grant. Reimbursement of up to $4,000 will be made upon receipt of original expense receipts after the completion of the grant recipient's research visit.
