Hoover Presidential Library Association Travel Grants

The Herbert Hoover Presidential Library Association is a nonprofit support group for the Hoover Presidential Library-Museum and Hoover National Historic Site in West Branch. The Association has funded a travel grant program for twenty-one years, awarding over $440,000 in grants. The program, funded entirely through contributions from private individuals, corporations, and foundations, is specifically intended to promote the study of subjects of interest and concern to Herbert Hoover, Lou Henry Hoover, their associates, and other public figures as reflected in the Library's collections. It is the applicant's responsibility to contact the archival staff to determine if Library holdings are pertinent to the applicant's research. An independent committee of distinguished scholars from Iowa colleges and universities evaluates the research proposals. All funds awarded shall be expended for travel and research expenses related to the use of the holdings of the Herbert Hoover Presidential Library. In recent years, awards have ranged from $500 to $1,500 per applicant. For more information, contact the Hoover Presidential Library Association, P.O.
