I got the “thin envelope” from the Leather Archives & Museum, after I applied for their Visiting Scholar program a while back. I didn’t get it.
However, they did say:
…the committee was impressed with your proposal, specifically the wide scope of sexuality study you will visit in the text. The LA&M is inspired by your work and its potential contributions to sexuality scholarship.
In the mean time, if the Archives can support your project from a distance, please feel free to contact me. The selection committee has authorized a $50 photocopy duplication fee / postage credit for your project to be used by the end of 2012.
That’s nice of them. Not even sure what I will do with the micro-grant.
