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.

What are the Harry H. Harkins, Jr. T'73 Travel Grants?

In previous years, the Rubenstein Library has provided travel grants for researchers whose work would benefit from access to our gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender history collections. The grants are named in honor of Harry H. Harkins, Jr. T'73 for his generous support of this program and ongoing support of LGBT history and sexuality studies collections for Duke University Libraries.
