This program provides support for fulltime research and study at any of the facilities maintained by the Commission for a period of four to twelve consecutive weeks between May 1,1995, and April 30,1996, at the rate of $1200 per month. The program is open to college and university affiliated scholars, including graduate students, independent researchers, pubUc sedor professionals in history-related disriplines, writers, and others. The application deadline is January 20,1995. The scholars-in-residence program aims to promote the interpretation of Pennsylvania history, to encourage research drawing upon the Commissions archival and and artifacrual resources, and to develop collégial relationships between scholars and Commission staff. Applicants are encouraged to conceive of research topics as broadly as possible, and it is not required that research be limited to materials in PHMC archival or museum collections. Particular consideration will be given to proposals that address topics relevant to interpretive themes addressed by the Commission's programs, including but not limited to Pennsylvania's tradition of religious and political toleration, colonial life, rural and agricultural life, military history, the development of ethnic communities and ethnic realtions within the state, the history of communal societies, architectural history, and the history of public policy. Proposals that address the agency's current programmatic initiatives in African-American history and industrial history are especially encouraged , as are proposals for material culture based studies. Projects that are likely to result in widespread dissemination of research through publications , exhibitions, films, and other means will also be given particular consideration.
