Apply for a Quilt Research Grant from the AQSG

AQSG Office in Nebraska
The application deadline for the Lucy Hilty Research Grant and the Meredith Scholar Award is February 1, 2013.  Guidelines and pdf's of the applications forms are on the American Quilt Study Group website under Grants and Scholarships.

I've been a member of AQSG for over a decade now. This is one of the few organizations that does sponsor quilt-related research. So - if you've wanted to research and document quilts, quilters, quilt guides, quilt trends, etc - here's your opportunity to apply for a grant for up to $2,500. 

Here is an opportunity for a quilter, a guild, an undergraduate or graduate student to secure funding for a project.  Enjoy!
