Description: The Beinecke Library offers, on a competitive basis, short-term fellowships to support research in the Yale Library special collections. This application is open to academic and independent scholars, locally and globally, who would like to apply for funding to pursue research projects that require one to four months of onsite research with the collections. Applications are welcome from all interested researchers, regardless of their institutional association, race, cultural background, ability, sexual orientation, gender, or socioeconomic status. Applications from scholars utilizing traditional methods of archival and bibliographic research are encouraged as are applications from individuals who wish to pursue creative, interdisciplinary, and non-traditional approaches to conducting research in the collections. This is a residential fellowship and fellows are expected to spend the majority of their time in the reading room. Fellows are meant to participate in the intellectual life of the university and are encouraged to participate in the activities of library. See website for more info.

Award: Fellowships will be awarded in the amount of $5,000 per month for up to four months of research. Fellows must also submit a budget to be eligible to receive up to $5,000 in funding to cover travel to and from New Haven. The budget may also include travel costs for conducting research at other relevant research libraries directly following the fellowship period at Yale.  Fellows’ funding will be awarded at the beginning of the fellowship. All fellows are responsible for paying any taxes related to the receipt of their fellowship.

Eligibility: Applicants cannot be enrolled in a degree program at the time of their fellowship

Deadline: Dec. 1, 2021
