The American Philosophical Society Library is pleased to announce three new fellowships under a grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation that may be of interest to members of this community.
These opportunities are for scholars at various stages of their careers, especially Native American scholars in training, tribal college and university faculty members, and other scholars working closely with Native communities on projects. Each fellowship provides a stipend and travel funds. The application deadline is March 1, 2017 and all materials must be submitted online. Full details can be found in the links bellow:
- 12-month fellowship intended for an advanced PhD student. Applications are open to scholars in all related fields and all periods of time, although preference will be given to those who have experience working with Native communities.
- 12-month fellowship for post-doctoral scholars at any stage of their careers. Applications are open to scholars in all related fields and all periods of time, although preference will be given to those who have experience working with Native communities.
- Short-term fellowships aimed to encourage Digital Knowledge Sharing among scholars of the history, culture, and languages of Indigenous people of North America. Open to individuals working on Native American and Indigenous topics who need to do archival research at the APS Library or elsewhere in order to complete their projects.
The deadline for all three of these fellowships is March 1st, 2017 and the person of contact for these fellowships is Abby Shelton, firstname.lastname@example.org.
