Information for grant recipients
As a recipient of an award from the Jacobs Research Funds, you are
required to deposit your field materials in the Jacobs Research Funds
Collection at the University of Washington's Division of Archives and
Manuscripts in the interests of protecting your irreplaceable field
data. Access to these materials will be controlled as specified in
the Deed of Gift which you will file with your materials. The default
is that you will have sole control over the materials for twenty-five
years, and on the twenty-fifth anniversary of your award from the
JRF, the public may gain access to your materials. You may also
archive your field materials elsewhere, such as in a local, region-specific or online
When you archive your field materials, you must also file a final report. Both forms are below.
University of Washington Libraries
Attn: Pacific Northwest Curator
Seattle WA 98195-2900
Depositors of field materials will be sent a copy of the countersigned Deed of Gift form by UW Libraries.
The cost of copying your materials and delivering them to the University of Washington is to be paid for out of the funds you receive from the Jacobs Research Funds. A copy of your final report should also be sent to email@example.com
The importance of filing your final reports and archiving the results of research cannot be overstated. Researchers may hold grants in consecutive years, but the final report must be filed and materials must be archived before subsequent funding can be received.
