The Terra Foundation offers Research Travel Grants to enable scholars outside the United States to consult resources that are only available within the United States. These grants provide support for research on topics concerning American art and visual culture prior to 1980. Grant funding is available for short-term travel (3 months maximum) that gives scholars:
- An opportunity to discover new source material;
- Experience works of art first-hand in museums and private collections;
- Consult local archives and library collections;
- Establish professional networks for future research.
Funds can be used for related transportation, lodging, meals, and research fees and expenses. They cannot be used for the purchase of computers or other equipment.
The foundation only accepts proposals from doctoral students and postdoctoral and senior scholars outside the United States.
