The Mary Lily Research Grants for The Sallie Bingham Center for Womens
History and Culture at Duke University
The Mary Lily Research grants are for research using the collections
held by the Sallie Bingham Center for Women's History and Culture.
Grant money may be used for travel to the Rare Book, Manuscript, and
Special Collections Library, costs of copying pertinent archival
resources, and living expenses while pursuing research here. The
maximum award per applicant is $1,000.
The Sallie Bingham Center documents the public and private lives of
women through a wide variety of published and unpublished sources.
Collections of personal papers, family papers, and organizational
records complement print sources such as books and periodicals.
Particular strengths of the Sallie Bingham Center are feminism in the
U.S., women's prescriptive literature from the 19th and 20th centuries,
girls' literature, zines, artist's books by women, and the history and
culture of women in the South. Also, a number of prominent women
writers have placed their personal and professional papers at Duke.
