The application deadline is February 15, 2007, for University of Chicago Library Special Collections short-term research fellowships for 2007-2008. Any visiting researcher residing more than 100 miles from Chicago whose project would be advanced by on-site consultation of materials in the Special Collections Research Center is eligible. Awards will be made based on an evaluation of the research proposal and the applicant's ability to complete it successfully. Priority will be given to projects that cannot be conducted without on-site access to the original materials and where University of Chicago collections are central to the research. Up to $3,000 will be awarded to help cover projected travel, living and research expenses. Applications from women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are encouraged.
