Rakow Grant for Glass Research
The Corning Museum of Glass sponsors a program which makes available one or more annual grants totalling up to $10,000. Individuals and institutions may apply. There are no national residency requirements, and the results of the research may be reported in any language, but preference may be given to projects which will bring researchers to Corning to study the Museum’s collections or to use its Library. Also to projects which will be completed with the funding available, rather than to projects which will only be advanced by this grant. Projects which are a portion of a larger program, and which are already being funded by others, are unlikely to receive the award. To summarise: The judges are looking for a project which will lead to a finished product within the funding limits and whose research will bring the recipient to Corning.
