ACLS - New York Public Library Fellowships
Organization: American Council of Learned Societies
ACLS and the New York Public Library offer a collaborative program to provide up to five residential fellowships at the Library's Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers. The Center provides opportunities for up to 15 Fellows to explore and use the collections of the NYPL Humanities and Social Sciences Library. The Center also serves as a forum for the exchange of ideas among Fellows, invited guests, the wider academic and cultural communities, and the interested public. It provides individual office space and common areas in the Library building for its Fellows. Fellows are required to be in continuous residence from September 8, 2008 through May 22, 2009, and to participate in Center activities. These may include daily lunches, readings, lectures, colloquia, symposia, and conferences. Each Fellow will also be required to offer a public presentation-a paper, a lecture-of publishable quality. More information about the New York Public Library and its collections is available at www.nypl.org.The stipend for the NYPL residential fellowships will be $50,000 for Assistant and Associate Professors and $60,000 for full Professors. Application for an ACLS/NYPL residential fellowship has the same eligibility requirements, application form, and schedule as the ACLS Fellowship Program. These residential fellowships are granted to scholars whose projects will benefit from research in the collections of the NYPL Humanities and Social Sciences Library; applicants will be asked to identify the specific resources to be used and benefits to be gained.PLEASE NOTE: Because this is a collaborative fellowship, applicants for the ACLS/NYPL residential fellowships must also apply to the Dorothy and Lewis B. Cullman Center for Scholars and Writers at the NYPL.
