Last day: accepting applications for the 2019 Lucy Shelton Caswell Research Award

This award of up to $2500, made possible by a generous gift from the Will and Ann Eisner Family Foundation, supports a researcher who needs to travel to Columbus, OH to use the  BICLM collections by helping defray travel expenses, living expenses in Columbus, or research costs. The deadline for applications is November 1, 2018 (must be received or postmarked by this date.) The announcement of decision is December 15, 2018. Research is to be completed by June 30, 2020.

Join us February 14 and 15 for our first-ever Day of Giving!

Your support on the Day of Giving will help us provide research awards to scholars across the country to travel to Columbus and access the special materials in the world-renowned Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum collections. 

The Billy Ireland Cartoon Library & Museum has amassed the world’s largest collection of cartoon and comics materials, including millions of rare and unique items. Many of these must be accessed on site, but scholars often lack the funds they need to travel here. Your generosity will make it possible for more researchers to visit and take advantage of our distinctive materials. 

Your gift will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Will and Ann Eisner Family Foundation, doubling the impact of your donation and establish an endowment that will generate funds for the Lucy Shelton Caswell Research Award.

Can’t wait till then to show your support? Click here to make your gift in advance of the Day of Giving.
