The Lewis Walpole Library Fellowships and Travel Grants for 2011-2012
The Lewis Walpole Library, Farmington, CT

Applications due by 18 January 2010

The Lewis Walpole Library, a department of Yale University Library, invites applications to its 2011-2012 fellowship and travel grant program. Located in Farmington, Connecticut, the Library offers short-term residential fellowships and travel grants to support research in the Library’s rich collections of eighteenth century—mainly British—materials, including important holdings of prints, drawings, manuscripts, rare books, and paintings, as well as a growing collection of sources for the study of New England Native Americans.

Scholars undertaking postdoctoral or equivalent research, and doctoral candidates at work on a dissertation, are encouraged to apply. Recipients are expected to be in residence at the Library, to be free of other significant professional obligations during their stay, and to focus their research on the Lewis Walpole Library’s collections. Fellows also have access to additional resources at Yale, including those in the Sterling Memorial Library, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the Yale Center for British Art.
