Through OSUs membership, the College of Arts and Sciences offers competitive travel grants to junior faculty and graduate students to conduct research at the Newberry Library and/or attend CRS seminars, programs, and events. These limited awards range from $500 to $1,000. While on site and researching the collections, grant recipients receive special retrieval and copying services.
