To encourage graduate-level and advanced study in Marine Corps history and related fields, the Marine Corps Heritage Foundation provides research grants of $400 to $3,000 to graduate students and individuals interested in studying a subject that fills a need as determined by the U.S. Marine Corpsí historians. Applicants for grants should have the ability to conduct advanced study in those aspects of American military history and museum activities directly related to the Marine Corps. The application for research grants is below. For more information or questions on the Marine Corps Heritage Foundationís research grants, please contact the Marine Corps History Division at 703-432-5058.

Areas and Topics of Study
Applicants may suggest study projects, or the staff of the Marine Corps History Division or National Museum of the Marine Corps can provide guidance for selection of an appropriate topic. The researcher has considerable latitude in choosing a topic, encompassing such diverse topics as wars, institutions, organization and administration, policy, biography, civil affairs and civic action, civil-military relations, weaponry and technology, manpower, training and education, strategy, tactics, and logistics, as well as the interaction of diplomatic, political, economic, social and intellectual trends affecting American military affairs during peace and war. Research may also deal with museum curatorial fields such as exhibit design, military art, ordinance uniforms, equipment, aviation and other related topics. The program gives preference to projects covering the pre-1991 period where records are declassified or can be most readily declassified and made available to scholars. Research must result in a finite product which directly furthers or illuminates some aspect of the history of the Marine Corps. Examples include articles for professional journals, publishable monographs or essays, bibliographies, works of art, museum displays or dioramas.
