The Lewis Walpole Library, a department of Yale University Library, invites applications to its 2009-2010 fellowship program. Located in Farmington, Connecticut, the library offers short-term residential fellowships and travel grants to support research in the library’s rich collections of 18th-century-mainly British-materials. Scholars undertaking post-doctoral or equivalent research, and doctoral candidates at work on a dissertation, are encouraged to apply.
Lewis Walpole Library fellowships, usually for one month, include the cost of travel to and from Farmington, accommodation in an 18th-century house on the library’s campus, and a living allowance stipend (currently $1,800). The library’s travel grants typically cover transportation costs for research trips of shorter duration and also include accommodation on site. See the library’s fellowship page for more information. Deadline: January 16, 2009.
