The Travel/Research Fund for Studies in the History of Natural History was founded by an alumnus in 2005. The fund’s purpose is to strengthen the study of natural history at the University and to foster understanding and awareness of the natural history collections in the University's libraries as a major research resource in the history of natural history.

Awards from the fund may be made to USC faculty and students to assist in conducting relevant research at other institutions and to researchers from elsewhere, especially from other South Carolina colleges and universities, to conduct relevant research at the University of South Carolina.

For information on application for this award, view http://library.sc.edu/p/Collections/Rare/Fellowships/NaturalHistory or contact: Elizabeth Sudduth, Director of the Irvin Department of Rare Books and Special Collections at 803-777-5487 or esudduth@mailbox.sc.edu.
