Announcing Two Fellowship Opportunities

Deadline: October 21, 2016

 

Under Governor Tom Wolf's leadership, the Commonwealth has a renewed focus bringing fresh ideas and the best and brightest minds to public service. The Office of Administration is pleased to announce the launch of its most recent effort toward that goal: the William Penn Fellowship program.

Through the William Penn Fellowship, selected candidates will work two years alongside executive leadership to address challenges facing Pennsylvania. At the conclusion of the fellowships, participants will have the opportunity to present the results of their work to the Governor and other senior officials.

The fellowship, which begins in Summer 2017, is open to individuals who hold a master's degree or doctorate earned between December 2013 and August 2017. Applications are being accepted from August 1 through October 21, 2016. Details are available at www.pennfellowship.pa.gov. Students, alumni, and faculty can direct questions to:

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is accepting applications for the 2017-2018 Mellon Fellowships for Dissertation Research in Original Sources. The purposes of this fellowship program are to:

  • help junior scholars in the humanities and related social science fields gain skill and creativity in developing knowledge from original sources;
  • enable dissertation writers to do research wherever relevant sources may be, rather than just where financial support is, available;
  • encourage more extensive and innovative uses of original sources in libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and related repositories in the United States and abroad; and
  • provide insight from the viewpoint of doctoral candidates into how scholarly resources can be developed for access most helpfully in the future.

The program is offering about 15 competitively awarded fellowships in 2017. Each provides a stipend of $2,000 per month for 9 to 12 months. Each fellow will receive an additional $1,000 upon participating in a symposium on research in original sources and submitting an acceptable report to CLIR on the research experience. Thus, the maximum award is $25,000.

Fellowship stipends will support research beginning between June 1 and September 1, 2017, and ending within 12 months of commencing. Fellowships will not be renewed or extended. Fellows are expected to work full time on their dissertation research without holding teaching or research assistantships or undertaking other paid work. Fellows may use stipends to meet living expenses, travel costs, and other expenses that enable dissertation research to be carried out, but not to defray tuition.

The deadline for submission of application materials is 5:00 p.m. Eastern time, Friday, December 2, 2016. Applicants do not have to be U.S. citizens, but must be enrolled in a doctoral program in a graduate school in the United States. For further information on eligibility, requirements, and deadlines, visit www.clir.org/fellowships/mellon/mellon.html.
