The University of Chicago Library Short-Term Research Fellowships, 2008-2009

The University of Chicago Library announces a program of short-term research fellowships for 2008-2009. Any visiting researcher residing more than 100 miles from Chicago whose project requires on-site consultation of materials in the Special Collections Research Center is eligible. Support for beginning scholars is a priority of the program. 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 of support will be awarded to help cover projected travel, living, and research expenses. Applications from women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are encouraged. The deadline for applications is February 15, 2008. Notice of awards will be made April 4, 2008, for use between July 1, 2008, and June 30, 2009.
