Selection of the 2021 fellow will be based on the soundness of the proposal, its relation to the holdings of the Missouri State Archives as demonstrated by specific collection citations, the potential of the research to impact the academic community and the qualifications of the applicant. Proposals making use of materials only available onsite at the Missouri State Archives or its St. Louis branch have preference over those using records available online. Notification of the award will occur by April 30, 2021.
The fellowship comes with $1,500 award intended to defray expenses incurred when visiting the Missouri State Archives and/or its St. Louis branch.
