Short and Long-Term Fellowships at the John Carter Brown Library

December 1, 2015 Karen Popp Fellowships

The John Carter Brown Library will award approximately forty residential research fellowships for the year July 1, 2016–June 30, 2017. Sponsorship of research at the John Carter Brown Library is reserved exclusively for scholars whose work is centered on the colonial history of the Americas, North and South, including all aspects of the European, African, and Native American engagement.

Short-term John Carter Brown Library Fellowships are available for periods of two to four months and carry a stipend of $2,100 per month. These fellowships are open to citizens of the United States and foreign nationals who are engaged in pre- or post-doctoral, or independent, research. Graduate students must have passed their preliminary or general examinations at the time of application.

The Library also offers long-term fellowships, several of which are funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), an independent agency of the U.S. Federal government. Additional long-term fellowships have been made possible by Donald L. Saunders; R. David Parsons (for the study of the history of exploration and discovery); and The Reed Foundation, which has endowed the InterAmericas Fellowship (for research on the history of the British West Indies and the Caribbean basin).
