The Indiana University Institute for Advanced Study is now accepting applications for its 2019 Summer Repository Research Fellowship (SRRF). This program funds a two-week residential fellowship for a community scholar or faculty member from outside Indiana University Bloomington to conduct in-depth research in the collections of one or more of our partner repositories. The fellowship provides funding for travel costs, accommodation, per diem, and a two-week stipend.
This program is particularly appropriate for projects that involve ongoing collaboration with Indiana University Bloomington repositories or departments and/or research collaborations involving IUB faculty members. We especially welcome applications from Minority Serving Institutions, community colleges, and source communities.
This initiative is intended to advance research in the rich collections of the IU Bloomington campus and to build partnerships between scholars at and beyond IUB. Please note: This fellowship supports research in IU Bloomington’s unique collections; the application should focus on materials that cannot be accessed elsewhere. Projects concentrating on items that can be purchased, borrowed through interlibrary loan, or utilized effectively from a distance via digital surrogates are not within the scope of this program.
Applications are due by March 8, 2019. Applicants must consult with a repository staff member about their proposed project and research logistics before submitting an application.
For the Summer 2019 program, we are partnering with more than a dozen archives, libraries, and museums on campus. For application materials, the complete list of partner repositories, and additional information, please visit our website at https://iasweb.webtest.iu.edu/research-support/fellows/summer-repo-research-fellowship/index.html
Questions about the fellowship should be addressed to IU IAS Associate Director Suzanne Godby Ingalsbe at [email protected]. Questions about collections, access, and similar issues should be directed to repository staff members.
ACLS invites applications for the ninth competition of the Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows program. This year, the program will place up to 21 recent PhDs from the humanities and humanistic social sciences in two-year term staff positions at partnering organizations in government and the nonprofit sector. Fellows will participate in the substantive work of these organizations and receive professional mentoring. Fellows receive a stipend of $68,000 per year and have access to individual health insurance, a relocation allowance, and up to $3,000 to be used toward professional development activities over the course of the fellowship term.
This initiative, made possible by a grant from The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, aims to expand the role of doctoral education in the United States by demonstrating that the capacities developed in the advanced study of the humanities have wide application, both within and beyond the academy. The Mellon/ACLS Public Fellows program allows PhDs to gain career-building experience in fields such as public policy, development, conservation, arts and culture, and media.
