CLIR/Library of Congress Mellon Fellowship

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) is offering one fellowship award to support original source dissertation research in the humanities or related social sciences at the Preservation Research and Testing Division of the Library of Congress in Washington, DC. The fellowship is offered as part of CLIR's long-established Mellon Fellowship program and is generously funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. The total award ranges from $23,500 to $31,000, depending on the length of the project, which can last from 9 to 12 months. Fellows must begin their research between June 1 and September 1, 2017 and end within 12 months of commencing.

CLIR seeks proposals from Ph.D. students whose dissertation projects would benefit from the opportunity to examine original sources using the entire array of new technologies and equipment available at the Library of Congress, which has in its holdings 160 million items, including international collections of original source material. Search the catalog at http://www.loc.gov/search/?all=true. Employees at the Library of Congress will train and assist the fellow in using the available tools; no prior technical experience or scientific background is required.

For questions regarding the fellowship application process, email mellon@clir.org. For questions regarding the Library of Congress and the Preservation Directorate, contact Dr. Fenella France, Chief of the Library’s Preservation Research and Testing Division, at frfr@loc.gov. The full fellowship description, including instructions for submitting an application can be found on CLIR’s website at http://www.clir.org/fellowships/mellon/preservation.html. The deadline is February 28, 2017.
