Rakow Research Grant Application

Rakow Research Grant Application

How to Apply

Applications, which are reviewed by a Museum staff committee, must be received before February 1 of the year for which funding is requested. Notification of the committee's decision will be sent by April 1. Successful applicants will normally receive all of the approved funds at the beginning of the project. In the event that full funding of a project cannot be given, the applicant will be contacted immediately to determine if the project can be modified.

Applicants must certify that they will expend any funds granted in accordance with the project outlines, and that the Museum will be informed of any other grants that are awarded in support of this project. Any major changes in plans made after the awarding of a grant require the prior written consent of the Museum. A brief written report documenting the results of the project is required for publication in the Journal of Glass Studies within the Notes sections, due on February 28 of the following year that the grant was awarded. A summary of how the grant funds were expended is also required. Unspent funds must be returned to the Museum. Successful applicants may be approached to submit or edit a short version of their research report and a related image for the Museum's magazine, The Gather. We also request that any future publication or presentation of the research conducted as part of the Rakow Research Grant acknowledges the award and the Corning Museum of Glass. Award recipients are encouraged to provide offprints, copies of articles or publications, and/or notification of publications resulting from the Rakow Research Grant to the Rakow Research Library.
