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.
