Fellowships and Travel Grants in Eighteenth-Century Studies
The Lewis Walpole Library, 2020–21

Applications due by 6 January 2020

The Lewis Walpole Library, a department of Yale University Library, invites applications to its 2020–2021 fellowship 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 materials (mainly British), including important holdings of prints, drawings, manuscripts, rare books, and paintings. Scholars pursuing postdoctoral or advanced research, as well as 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. Residential fellowships include the cost of travel to and from Farmington, accommodation for four weeks in an eighteenth-century house on the library’s campus, and a per diem living allowance. Travel grants cover transportation costs to and from Farmington for research trips of shorter duration and include on-site accommodation.

Applications are accepted beginning the first Monday in November. The application deadline is January 6, 2020. Awards will be announced in March.
