Grants of up to $3,500 to USA and Canada postdoctoral scholars and graduate students to conduct research on indigenous peoples of the continental United States and Canada. Funding is intended for research addressing Native American linguistics, ethnohistory, and history of studies.

The grants are intended for such costs as travel, tapes, films, and consultants' fees.
Recipients of awards are expected to provide the American Philosophical Society with a brief formal report. In addition, the American Philosophical Society Library requests physical or digital copies of any field notes, audio-visual recordings, transcriptions, analyses, or other original materials produced in the process of the grant-funded research for archiving among the Library's extensive research collections as part of the growing Phillips Fund for Native American Research Collection.
