Ransom Center Research Fellowships

The Ransom Center is an internationally renowned humanities research library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin. For its 2019–2020 fellowship program, the Ransom Center will award 10 dissertation fellowships and up to 50 postdoctoral fellowships for projects that require substantial on-site use of its collections. The collections support research in all areas of the humanities, including literature, photography, film, art, the performing arts, music, and cultural history. Fellowships are open to individuals of any nationality.

Among the several hundred items in the Medieval and Early Modern Collection and the Eastern Manuscript Collection are Ptolemaic papyri of the third to first century B.C., an eleventh-century codex from the monastery at Tegernsee, the richly illuminated Chronicles (ca. 1450) of Jean Froissart (1337-1404) and the fifteenth-century Belleville Book of Hours. There are also important holdings in British history and the history of science.
