The Alexander N. Charters Adult Education Grants-in-Aid Program provides funding for researchers and practitioners interested in exploring the history and practice of adult education using the Charters Library adult education collections. Up to $4,000 worth of grants-in-aid are awarded each year. The actual amount of each award will depend upon the scope of the project outlined in the applicant's proposal. See below for a list of previous recipients.

A complete list of the Charters Library adult education collections is available here.
