The Phillips Fund for Native American Research provides grants for research in Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and the history of studies of Native Americans, in the continental United States and Canada. The grants are intended for such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants' fees. . . . The committee distinguishes ethnohistory from contemporary ethnography as the study of cultures and cultural change through time.
The committee prefers to support the work of younger scholars who have received the doctorate. Applications are also accepted from graduate students for research on master’s theses or doctoral dissertations.
