The Folger Institute, a center for advanced study and research in the humanities, is sponsored by the Folger Shakespeare Library, which houses one of the world’s finest collections of Renaissance books, and by a consortium of universities. In collaboration with the American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS), the institute awards an annual ASECS/Folger Institute Fellowship of $2,000 to an ABD graduate student or a postdoctoral scholar conducting research in the period 1660 to 1815. The application deadline for this fellowship falls on the institute’s September application deadline, and applicants must be ASECS members in good standing. Preference is given to scholars concurrently applying to institute programs. For more information and instructions on how to apply see the ASECS/Folger Institute Fellowship page.
