University of Michigan
Application Deadline: January 31, 2020
The University of Michigan Library invites applications for fellowships for research in residence. We will award Ralph C. and Mary Lynn Heid Research Fellowships to support research projects that require substantial on-site use of our special collections, including the Islamic Manuscripts Collection held in the Special Collections Research Center. Applications for support for all types of research projects — academic, creative, journalistic, etc. — will be considered, and no specific credentials are required.
Fellows are expected to be in residence for at least one week during the period from 1 July 2020 through 30 June 2021. Fellows will be awarded $1,500 for a project requiring a residence of one week or more, or $3,000 for a project requiring a residence of three weeks or more. Award notifications will be made by 31 March 2020.
Applicants are required to provide a description of the proposed research (500 words or fewer), a description or preliminary list (one page max) of the collection material to be consulted, a curriculum vitae or resume, and two letters of support. The fellowship opportunity is open to applicants of all nationalities. Non-U.S. citizens awarded a fellowship are required to obtain a J-1 visa. Fellowships are normally not granted to researchers who live within commuting distance of the library. Applications must be submitted online through Submittable.
