The Center offers a Faculty Research Stipend aimed at giving an Augustana faculty member the time, resources, and incentive to conduct one week of in-depth research at the Center.

Following their week of research, recipients write a brief report that summarizes their findings and how they intend to use these resources in their teaching or scholarly endeavors.
