The Leather Archives & Museum [LA&M] announces a sixth annual Visiting Scholar Program for the Fall 2016 or Spring 2017 academic terms.  A stipend of $1,000 will be awarded to one or two recipient scholars to conduct research using the collections of the LA&M.  A travel reimbursement allowance of up to $1,000 will also be provided to the recipients.

The award is available to three types of scholars:

  1. Scholars with academic appointments 
  2. Graduate students pursing an MFA or PhD

The LA&M is seeking projects that may enhance the institution's mission to

disseminate information to the public about the history of the leather / fetish / BDSM community and its culture.  Toward that end, we are particularly interested in proposals that may provide materials for display in its galleries, as a traveling exhibit or as an online exhibition.
