CLIR/Library of Congress Mellon Fellowship Announced

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 CLIR/Library of Congress Mellon Fellowship is offered as part of CLIR's long-established Mellon Fellowship program and is generously funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.

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. Employees at the Library of Congress will train and assist the fellow in using the available tools.

The total award ranges from $23,500 to $31,000, depending on the length of the project. Fellows must begin their research between June 1 and September 1, 2016 and end within 12 months of commencing. Instructions for submitting an application can be found on CLIR's website at http://www.clir.org/fellowships/mellon/preservation.html. The application deadline is February 29, 2016.

Questions about the fellowship application process should be emailed to 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.
