Folger Shakespeare Library Short-term Fellowships

Event Details

End: March 1, 2018
More Info:

Short-term fellowships support scholars in residence for one to three months with a monthly stipend of $2,500.  Scholars must hold a terminal degree in their field in order to be eligible for a short-term fellowship.  Applications will be evaluated based on the proposed topic’s impact, its relevance to the field, the originality and sophistication of the scholar’s approach, the feasibility of the scholar’s research objectives, and their expected use of Folger collections.  Particular weight is accorded to the scholar’s stated plan of work, and how their efforts will be concentrated in the Folger’s collections. 


The Folger has now opened its short-term fellowships to members of the performing arts community, as well as scholars working at archives, museums, and libraries. We welcome applications from archivists, creative artists, curators, librarians, performers, and playwrights whose research will benefit from focused engagement with the Folger collections. 


The next deadline for application is March 1, 2018 for a period of residence from June 2018 through June 2019, which offers scholars an opportunity to undertake a three-month fellowship during the summer months.
