Call for Applications for 2024-25 Alexander N. Charters Adult Education Grants-in-Aid Program
The Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) at Syracuse University Libraries is accepting applications now through Feb. 15 for the Alexander N. Charters Adult Education Grants-in-Aid program. The grant, up to $5,000 depending on the proposal, is awarded to scholars or practitioners doing research using SCRC’s adult education collections.

Syracuse University Libraries has assembled historical documents and University records, including manuscript, print, visual and media materials related to adult education since 1949.
This material is known collectively as the Alexander N. Charters Library for Educators of Adults, in recognition of Charters’ efforts to promote and expand SCRC’s adult education holdings. Through the generosity of Charters, SCRC offers annual grants to one or more scholars or practitioners wishing to do research using SCRC’s adult education collections with the amount of the award dependent on the scope of the research outlined in the applicant’s proposal.
