The Richard A. Baker Graduate Student Travel Grant is awarded annually to support graduate-level research conducted at member repositories of the Association of Centers for the Study of Congress (ACSC). The Scholarships and Awards Committee may divide the award between two applicants. Each application will be evaluated on its merits. Primary consideration will be given to projects involving the substantive study of issues related to the study of Congress. Each proposal should be aimed at a discrete end product. The Baker Award honors ACSC founding member and U. S. Senate Historian Emeritus Richard A. Baker.
