2021-2022 Grant Cycle Suspended

The Rubenstein Library will not offer research travel grants for the 2021-2022 cycle due to ongoing travel restrictions at Duke University and many other academic institutions in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19. We continue to offer reproduction services to all researchers through our regular online request process to provide access to our collections. We are using this time period to assess our current travel grant program in relation to the Rubenstein Library’s commitment to our Racial Justice Roadmap.


In previous years, Sallie Bingham Center has provided travel grants for researchers whose work would benefit from access to the women's history collections held at Duke University's Rubenstein Rare Book & Manuscript Library. The grants are named in honor of Mary Lily Kenan Flagler Bingham. For more information, please see the our main travel grant page.
