Patricia and Anthony Martone Grant
Ever wanted to get paid to write? Ever wanted to travel around the great state of Indiana? Ever wanted to do both? Then this grant might be right for you!


Dr. Patricia Martone graduated from Butler University in 1953 with a degree in English. While on campus, she wrote for and edited for MANUSCRIPTS, the undergraduate literary magazine. Years later, when her son Michael attended Butler, he also wrote for MANUSCRIPTS. Now the author of FORT WAYNE IS SEVENTH ON HITLER'S LIST and many other works, Michael Martone has established this grant in honor of his mother, Dr. Patricia Martone, and his father, Anthony Martone.  
The purpose of the grant is for “providing financial assistance to undergraduate Butler students to conduct research and publish work about the state of Indiana and its citizens with special attention paid to the city of Indianapolis, the state of Indiana, and the idea of the Midwest in general.” In short, this grant will allow students to travel the state and write about the experience.


This grant is for undergraduates of Butler University.
