The UWM Libraries invite proposals for the 2024 Morris Fromkin Memorial Research Grant and Lecture. The grant encourages and assists UWM scholars in all fields of study to conduct research on individuals, groups, movements, and ideas which have influenced the quest for social justice and human rights in the United States.

Who May Apply: All full-time UWM faculty and academic staff are encouraged to apply, individually or as a group.

Amount: $5,000 award which is intended to cover costs of research such as support for travel, research assistance, or other appropriate expenses. The award may not be used for salary.

Basis of Award: The award is based upon the importance of the topic to the history of the quest for social justice, the strength of the proposal, and the applicant’s qualifications for research on the topic. Applicants are encouraged to use the Fromkin Memorial Collection in some way toward their research.
