Grant of the Week: Linda Hall Library Fellowships

Jacob Ingram | Nov 7, 2014

Linda Hall Library is pleased to announce that resident fellowships for 2015 are now available.

The Linda Hall Library of Science, Engineering and Technology is an independent research library with rich and deep holdings in 69 languages. The collection of more than one million volumes includes printed books from the 15th century to the present, some 10,000 rare books, and over 47,000 journal titles, including journals with long runs dating from the 17th century. An exchange program with hundreds of academic institutions around the world has enabled the Library to acquire a significant collection of foreign research publications.

Resident fellowships are offered for the duration of 1 to 9 months in support of research projects in science, engineering, and technology; in the history of science, engineering, and technology; or in interdisciplinary topics that link science or technology to the broader culture.  Applications from US and international scholars are welcome. Fellowships up to $3,500 per month will assist scholars in financing a research visit.

Recipients of fellowships are expected to work full time on their research projects while at the Library, to engage with other resident scholars, and to offer a presentation on their work to the general public.

Eligibility: Doctorate-seeking scholars, scholars with a PhD or equivalent, and independent scholars who can demonstrate similar professional or academic experience are eligible to apply.

Application Information: The deadline for 2015 fellowships is January 5, 2015.
