The University of Chicago Library invites applications for short-term research fellowships. Any visiting researcher residing more than 100 miles from Chicago, and whose project requires on-site consultation of University of Chicago Library collections, primarily archives, manuscripts or printed materials in the Special Collections Research Center, is eligible. Support for beginning scholars is a priority of the program. Applications in the fields of late nineteenth- or early twentieth-century physics or physical chemistry, or nineteenth-century classical opera, will receive special consideration. The deadline for applications is March 5, 2012. Notice of awards will be made by April 23, 2012, for use between July 1, 2012 and June 30, 2013. For application instructions and more information see the fellowships page.
