Harry Ransom Center Seeks Applications for Research Fellowships in the Humanities

The Harry Ransom Humanities Research Center at the University of Texas at Austin is accepting applications for its 2009-10 research fellowships in the humanities. About fifty fellowships are awarded annually by the Ransom Center to support scholarly research projects in all areas of the humanities. Priority is given to proposals that concentrate on the center's collections and that require substantial on-site use of them. All applicants, with the exception of those applying for dissertation fellowships, must be post-doctorates or possess an equivalent terminal degree or a substantial record of scholarly achievement. Independent scholars are encouraged to apply. The fellowships range from one to four months and come with a stipend of $3,000 per month. Also available are $1,200-$1,700 travel stipends and dissertation fellowships with a $1,500 stipend.
