    The New Mexico History Museum (NMHM) invites researchers to apply for grants to support research into 19th and early 20th century New Mexico and Southwestern Jewish Pioneers.

    Warburg Research Grants may be applied for by graduate students, faculty, and independent researchers who seek to expand current scholarship regarding:

    • the lived experience of Jewish pioneers in New Mexico between 1820 and 1900
    • the social, political, economic, and religious context of this community in the 19th century

    Grants will be in the amount of $5,000 and may be used as needed to support any aspect of the project. Fundable expenses may include travel to New Mexico or other relevant research locations, digitization, reproduction, or transcription fees, and other expenses related to research. Payments will be made in two installments of $2,500 each: the first upon award of the grant, the second upon completion of the project.

    Projects shall result in a publishable paper of at least 6,000 words, with illustrations as appropriate. Projects may be part of a larger effort—such as a dissertation or book—or self-contained as in a journal article.

    Manuscripts must be completed within 12 months of the date of the grant award unless otherwise extended by the Director of the New Mexico History Museum; provided, that in no case shall total project time be more than 24 months from the date of grant award.

    Four grants will be awarded in 2022. Deadline for applications is July 5, 2022.
