Folger Institute Research Fellowships 2020-21

www.folger.edu/institute/fellowships

The Folger Shakespeare Library is embarking on a major renovation project to commence in early 2020. While this work is underway, the Folger Institute is committed to continuing its support of collections-based research, and to providing scholars with the resources they need to pursue and advance their work. The renovation offers the Institute the opportunity to create new kinds of awards, to make fellowships more adaptable, and to forge new relationships with archives, collections, libraries, and museums around the world.

Fellowship awards will be $3,500 to support four continuous weeks of work. The deadline for applications is January 1, 2020. Fellowships may be undertaken between July 2020 and May 2021.

Applicants should make a strong case for their proposed topic’s importance, its relevance to a field of study broadly supported by the Folger Library’s collections and programs, and the originality and sophistication of its approach. They should also describe the proposed location(s) of their work, with a justification of why and how this agenda will advance their project. Here are some scenarios an applicant might propose:

• A researcher is planning a trip to multiple archives in order to consult a range of rare materials, all in one trip.
• A researcher requests access to select electronic resources while writing from home.
• A researcher needs the dedicated time to work with a local collection.
• A researcher wishes to conduct research at a repository which is non-traditional, under-funded, or under-utilized.

The Folger has also arranged for a select number of archives, collections, libraries, and museums, without research fellowship endowments of their own, to host Folger fellows at their institutions. Each of these awards comes with an assurance of availability of collections items, space to work, and a contact person for reference consultations. Learn more about hosting partnerships at Jamestown Rediscovery, The John Rylands Research Institute, the Kislak Center at the University of Pennsylvania, Shakespeare’s Globe, and the Wellcome Collection.

Apply now online. Deadline for research fellowships is January 1, 2020.

Apollo Fellowships 2019, University of Sydney

Applications are invited for a short‐term Visiting Fellowship at the Centre for Classical and Near Eastern Studies of Australia (CCANESA) at The University of Sydney, for tenure during the 2020 Australian academic year. The Fellowship is valued at AU$4,000.

Background and Aims

The Apollo Visiting Fellowship is open to applications by young scholars of Classical Archaeology (defined as the archaeology of ancient Greece and Italy) to come to Sydney to consult with academic experts in their field and to work on their research at the Centre for Classical and Near Eastern Studies of Australia at the University of Sydney for a concentrated period.

Terms and Conditions

The Fellowship is open to young scholars from any country outside Australia who are in the final stages of writing of their thesis or within three years after the award of their PhD.

The Fellow may determine the length of their stay but it is hoped that they will be able to remain for a minimum of two weeks. It would be desirable if some of their stay coincided with an academic semester (roughly: March – June; August – November).

Applications close Friday 31 May 2019.

For further information about the Centre and to apply, please see the CCANESA website.

Australian Academy of the Humanities Fellowships

The Fellowship provides $4000 towards undertaking research or fieldwork in Australia or overseas, including accessing archives and other research materials and connecting with researchers and networks.
