Research Grants

Larry J. Hackman Research Residency

Deadline January 15, 2019

The Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Program supports advanced work on New York State history, government, or public policy with grants to qualified applicants to defray travel-related expenses for on-site research at the New York State Archives in Albany, NY.

In honor of the bicentennial of the construction of the Erie Canal, the State Archives invites researchers to apply with a research focus on the history of New York’s canal system. For a detailed guide to our records on the Erie Canal, go to The Mighty Chain: A Guide to Canal Records in the New York State Archives.

Previous Residents have included academic and public historians, graduate students, independent researchers and writers, and primary and secondary school teachers. Residencies range from a few days to several weeks depending upon the nature of the research and volume of records consulted. Contact the Archives Researcher Services staff to discuss your research topic and the records you propose to use: archref@nysed.gov or 518-474-8955.
