Fellowship: Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture Scholars-in-Residence Program

Monday, September 17, 2012
Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, one of The New York Public Library’s four research centers,  is now accepting applications for its Scholars-in-Residence Program for the academic year of 2013–2014.

The fellowship program encompasses projects in African, Afro-American, and Afro-Caribbean history and culture, with an emphasis on African diaspora studies, biography, social history, and African-American culture. (For information about the Schomburg Center’s holdings, please see www.schomburgcenter.org<http://www.schomburgcenter.org/>.)

Requirements Fellows are required to be in full-time residence at the Schomburg Center during the award period.  They are expected to utilize the Center’s resources extensively,
participate in scheduled seminars, colloquia, and luncheons,  review and critique papers presented at these forums, and prepare a report on work accomplished during their residency. Persons seeking support for research leading to degrees are not eligible under this program. Candidates for advanced degrees must have received the degree or completed all requirements for it by the application deadline. Foreign nationals
are not eligible unless they will have resided in the United States for three years immediately preceding the award date.

Award Fellowships funded by the program allow recipients to spend six months in residence with access to resources at both the Schomburg Center and The New York Public Library. The fellowship stipend is $30,000 for six months. This program
is made possible in part through grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Ford Foundation, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, and the Samuel I. Newhouse
