Grant of the Week: William L. Clements Library Fellowships

Karen Lou | Dec 7, 2020

Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the William L. Clements Library Fellowships.


The William L. Clements Library offers fellowships to help scholars access the Library's rich primary source collections for research. Specializing in pre-1900 American history and culture, the Clements Library's primary resources (books, manuscripts, prints, maps, photographs, and much more) support diverse research topics. Particular strengths include: graphic arts, gender and ethnicity, religion, the American Revolution, Native American history, slavery and antislavery, Atlantic history, the Caribbean, cartography, the Civil War, reform movements, travel and exploration, among others. 

The four broad categories are Long-term, Short-term, Week-long, and Digital fellowships. 


Long-term fellowships offer up to $12,000 and require a minimum residency of three months for full-time library research.

Short-term fellowships offer $2,500 and require a minimum residency of one month for full-time library research.

Week-long fellowships offer up to $1,500 and require a one-week minimum residency for full-time library research.

Digital Fellowships offer a non-residential opportunity to support researchers working remotely on any topic that can be supported by digitized library materials. Grants provide digital files of the materials and $1,000 to support research using them.
