The purposes of this fellowship program are to: help junior scholars in the humanities and related social-science fields gain skill and creativity in developing knowledge from original sources, enable dissertation writers to do research wherever relevant sources may be, encourage more extensive and innovative uses of original sources, and provide insight from the viewpoint of doctoral candidates into how scholarly resources can be developed for access most helpfully in the future. The program offers about fifteen competitively awarded fellowships a year carrying stipends of up to $25,000 to support dissertation research forperiods of 9 to 12 months.
