Houghton Library Visiting Fellowships

Jump to Comments

Houghton LibraryEach year Houghton Library awards a number of short-term visiting fellowships in support of scholarly use of our collections. Fellows will also have access to collections in Widener Library as well as to other libraries at the University. Preference is given to scholars whose research is closely based on materials in Houghton collections, especially when those materials are unique; fellowships are normally not granted to scholars who live within commuting distance of the library. Each fellow is expected to be in residence at Houghton for at least four weeks during the period from July 2014 through June 2015 (these do not have to be consecutive weeks). The stipend for each fellowship has been raised to $3,600 (note that the website may not yet reflect this recent change). The deadline for applications is 17 January 2014.

For further information, consult the Houghton Library website.
