Short-Term Research Fellowships at The University of Alabama 2018, USA
The Summersell Center offers short-term research fellowships intended to assist scholars from outside the Tuscaloosa area with their use of the archival collections and resources held on The University of Alabama campus. The endowment of these fellowships allows to continue them indefinitely and possibly to expand the number of them that program can offer while freeing up resources for other projects.
To support the study of southern history and promote the use of the collections housed at The University of Alabama, the Frances S. Summersell Center for the Study of the South, in partnership with The University of Alabama Libraries, offers a total of eight fellowships in the amount of $500 each for researchers whose project entails work to be conducted in southern history or southern studies at the W.S. Hoole Special Collections Library, the A.S. Williams III Americana Collection, or in other University of Alabama collections.
Applications should include two copies each of the following:
- A current CV.
- One letter of recommendation (which may be sent under separate cover).
- A description of the research project, no longer than two double-spaced pages, which includes a description of the particular resources to be used during the term of the fellowship.
Decisions regarding awards will be made by May 1, 2018, and research may be conducted anytime between June 1, 2018, and May 31, 2019.
Academic and non-academic researchers at any stage of their careers are encouraged to apply.
Because fellowships are designed primarily to help defray travel and lodging expenses, eligibility is restricted to researchers living outside the Tuscaloosa area.
