Grant of the Week: McCullough Research Fellowship
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 Marietta College's Bank of America/David and Rosalee McCullough Research Fellowship.
Applications for the inaugural Bank of America/David and Rosalee McCullough Research Fellowship at Marietta College, Ohio, are now being accepted for 2022–23.
Marietta College’s Bank of America/David and Rosalee McCullough Research Fellowship encourages the scholarly use of the nationally significant special collections archive at Legacy Library by providing support for travel, lodging, and food at Marietta, Ohio. Fellowships may be for two or four weeks. Fellows are expected to be in residence for the full term of their fellowship.
The Special Collections at Legacy Library contains rare books, manuscripts, photographs, artwork, and artifacts documenting the history and culture of the Ohio Valley. The collections located at Legacy Library are centered on the era of the New Nation and the early settlement of Ohio and the Northwest Territory but they are also rich in the history of Ohio, the Mid-Ohio Valley, and the Midwest. Special Collections can be searched here: https://library.marietta.edu/spc.
Marietta College anticipates that fellows will conduct research in the Legacy Library’s Special Collections over a two-to-four week period, present an informal public lecture on their research, meet with students once or twice in class to engage in discussion, and have dinner with the McCullough Fellowship committee early in their residency.
The fellow receives a $500 stipend for a 2-week residency or $1,000 stipend for a 4-week residency, free accommodation in a college-owned or on-campus apartment, and access to the on-campus dining facilities.
