The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation announces an open call for applications for the second annual Robert Rauschenberg Foundation Archives Research Residency (formerly Travel Fund), a program that provides partial support for costs related to travel and living expenses that scholars may incur in order to do research at the Rauschenberg Foundation and its Archives located in Manhattan, New York.

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 2019 Rauschenberg Archives Research Residency, renamed to reflect the recipients’ one- to two-week onsite research intensives and select participation in Foundation activities, supports continued scholarly and investigative use of archival materials by addressing financial barriers that may prohibit onsite access to the Archives. In addition, the application is open to all individuals encouraging research opportunities that include as well as move beyond traditional art historical discourse.

We invite scholars, academics, artists, and other researchers who can demonstrate a compelling need to use the archival materials onsite at the Foundation to apply. To be eligible, applicants must: reside 50 miles or more away from the Foundation; not have received a grant or other funding from the Foundation in the past 3 years; and be at the graduate level and above. All individuals eligible to travel in the United States are invited to apply. Please note, priority will be given to independent researchers or those affiliated with institutions with limited resources. Present and former staff and consultants are ineligible.

Residency period is one to two weeks between February 4 and December 12, 2019.

Applications opened on September 17, 2018 and will be open until the November 2, 2018 deadline. More information, including eligible projects, selection criteria, and how to apply, can be found on the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation website under Grants.
