Nicky B. Carpenter Fellowship in Manuscript Studies
The purpose of the Fellowship is to support residencies at HMML for research by senior scholars using the digital or microfilm manuscript collections at HMML.
Two to three fellowships of up to $5,000 will be awarded each year in support of a residency of at least two weeks. Funds may be applied toward travel to and from Collegeville, housing and meals at Saint John’s University, and costs related to duplication of HMML’s microfilm or digital resources. Fellowships may be supplemented by other sources of funding but may not be held simultaneously with another HMML award. Holders of the Fellowship must wait at least two years before applying again.
Applications must be submitted by April 15 for residency between July 1- December 31, or November 15 for residency between January 1-June 30.
Applicants are asked to provide:
- a letter of application with current contact information, the title of the project, length of the proposed residency at HMML and its projected dates
- a description of the project to be pursued, with an explanation of how HMML’s resources are essential to its successful completion of the project; applicants are advised to be as specific as possible about which resources will be needed (maximum length: 1,000 words)
- an updated curriculum vitae
- a confidential letter of recommendation to be sent directly to HMML by a scholar with knowledge of both the applicant and the subject area of the project
Please send all materials as email attachments to: firstname.lastname@example.org, with “Carpenter Fellowship” in the subject line. Letters should be sent by the referees directly to the same email address. Questions about the Fellowship may be sent to the same address.
