Since 1937 the PERMANENT FUND has been the Harvard Travellers Club's primary means of supporting and encouraging worthy travel-related research and exploration. Each year, in the best tradition of supporting "intelligent travel," the PERMANENT FUND has provided modest stipends (up to $4000 each) to one or more dedicated and adventurous individuals. As of 2014, approximately 50 grants have been awarded since the inception of the Fund.
The purpose of these grants is to foster research and/or exploration that involves travel as part of the project. There are no application forms. All that is required are a resume and a brief description of the project including the reason financial assistance is needed and the dates of travel. One to three grants are made each year to persons with projects that involve intelligent travel and exploration.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- The travel must be intimately involved with the research and/or exploration.
- Preference is given to graduate students.
- Preference is given to projects which are seen as adding to the sum of human knowledge of the world around us.
- The Fund does not offer scholarships and does not pay for travel unless it is intimately involved with the project. For instance, the fund will not pay for travel for someone who wants to spend time studying in a foreign city.
