Funding Opportunities

Researchers are invited to apply for a grant through the New England Regional Fellowship Consortium (NERFC). Awards are open to U.S. citizens and foreign nationals who hold the necessary U.S. government documents. Grants are designed to encourage projects that draw on the resources of several participating institutions, including the Pembroke Center Archives and Brown University Library.
