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.
The foregoing list is intended to suggest areas of research on colonial America that may benefit from the use of JCB materials. Applicants should not, however, apply for a grant in a specific fellowship category. All short-term applications are reviewed as a group without reference to these categories.
The deadline for submission of application materials is December 1, 2015; Interdisciplinary Cluster Fellowship applications are due on January 15, 2016. All materials must be emailed or postmarked no later than these respective dates. Announcements of fellowship awards will be made in late March 2015.
