The Indiana University Institute for Advanced Study is now accepting applications for its 2017 Summer Repository Research Fellowship. In partnership with repositories on the IU Bloomington campus and supported by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, the program funds a short-term fellowship for a faculty member or community scholar to conduct in-depth research in the collections of one or more of our partner repositories. Applicants from Minority Serving Institutions, community colleges, and source communities are welcome. Preference will be given to applicants who are collaborating with Indiana University Bloomington faculty members.
This initiative is intended to support research in the rich collections of the IU Bloomington campus and to build partnerships between scholars at and beyond IUB. The fellowship provides funding for travel costs, accommodation, per diem, and a two-week stipend. Please note: This fellowship is intended to support research in IU Bloomington’s unique collections; the application should focus on materials that cannot be accessed elsewhere.
More than a dozen partner repositories will be participating in Summer 2017; a full list of these partners is available on the IAS website at https://ias.indiana.edu/fellows/summer-research-fellowship#repositories. Applications are due by March 20, 2017. For application materials and additional information, please visit our website at http://ias.indiana.edu/fellows/summer-research-fellowship/.
Projects focusing 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.
