Archives Research Travel Fund

The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Archives Research Travel Fund is a new opportunity for researchers and scholars interested in visiting the Rauschenberg Foundation and its Archives in New York City.  The Fund will provide partial support for incurred costs related to travel expenses related to the visit.

The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Archives, consisting of Robert Rauschenberg’s personal papers and the records from his Florida and New York studios, is the most comprehensive body of information on the artist’s life and career.  The Archives Research Travel Fund supports continued scholarly and investigative use of these materials by supporting individuals that demonstrate a compelling need to use the archives and addressing financial barriers that may prohibit onsite access to the Archives. In addition, the application is open to all individuals, thereby encouraging research opportunities that move beyond traditional art historical discourse.

More information, including application guidelines, can be found via the How to Apply link below. Applications will be accepted from November 14, 2017, to the deadline on December 15, 2017.
