Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Program at the New York State Archives

The New York State Archives announces the availability of awards for qualified applicants to conduct research using historical records in the Archives. The Larry J. Hackman Research Residency Program is intended to support advanced work on New York State history, government, or public policy by defraying travel-related research expenses. It encourages public dissemination of research products. The program honors the New York State Archivist who managed the dramatic development of the State Archives between 1981 and 1995.

Applicant/Project Eligibility

Residents conduct research at the New York State Archives. Previous Residents have included academic and public historians, graduate students, independent researchers and writers, and primary and secondary school teachers. Projects involving innovative uses of the Archives, such as research for multimedia projects, exhibits, and websites, are welcomed. The topic or area of research must draw on government records in the New York State Archives. Preference will be given to projects that: (1) have application to enduring public policy issues, particularly in New York State, (2) rely on records that have been little used and are not available electronically or on microfilm, and (3) have a high probability of publication or other public dissemination.
