RSVP Field Development Grant
The RSVP Field Development Grant was created with funds from a generous bequest to RSVP by the late Eileen Curran, pioneering researcher and Emerita Professor of English at Colby College. The grant is intended to support a researcher or team of researchers in creating resources that will facilitate the work of other scholars in their studies of 19th-century British newspapers and periodicals.
