The Cecilia L. Johnson Grant provides funds for graduate student researchers who wish
to come to the University of Florida to work in the Florida history collections.
Application is open to all graduate students at higher institutions of learning, with special attention to students coming from a distance. Awards are for $1000. Researchers
are required to spend at least one week (five working days) on the University of Florida campus making use of materials
in Special Collections at the George A. Smathers Library. Preference will be given to students who are currently working on
an article, thesis, or book dealing with some aspect of Florida history, or in which Florida is a major component of research.
All applications will be reviewed by a judging panel composed of archivists and historians at the University of Florida.
For information on how to apply see the Application Instructions or contact James Cusick at firstname.lastname@example.org. The next application period will open October 1, 2010 and will close February 1, 2011.
