Harry S. Truman Presidential Library & Museum


Since it first opened its Research Room in 1959, the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum has assisted more than 14,100 historians, writers and scholars, representing more than 40 nations. From the beginning, the Truman Library Institute -- the nonprofit partner of the presidential library -- has provided grants-in-aid for researchers; the total granted now stands at nearly $2.7 million. Today, Research Grants, Dissertations Year Fellowships, and the biennial Scholar’s Award and Harry S. Truman Book Award provide assistance to emerging and established scholars whose contributions illuminate the critical issues of Truman’s presidency and legacy. Applications for funding will be considered by the Truman Library Institute’s Committee on Research, Scholarship and Education.
