Here's another....

This one is a little late making it to the Blog, but there is still plenty of time to apply.

Washington, D.C. – For the fifth year, the Council on Library and Information Resources is offering fellowships funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation to support dissertation research in the humanities in original sources.
Applications postmarked by November 15, 2005 (November 1, 2005, if mailed from outside the United States) will be considered for about 10 awards to be announced by April 1, 2006 for use beginning between June 1 and September 1, 2006.
The purposes of the 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 rather than just where financial support is available;
· encourage more extensive and innovative uses of original sources in libraries, archives, museums, historical societies, and related repositories in the U.S. and abroad; and
· provide insight from the viewpoint of doctoral candidates into how scholarly resources can be developed for access most helpfully in the future.
Application information and forms are available under Awards at, or may be requested from CLIR by e-mail at, by telephone at 202-939-4750, or by regular mail at CLIR Mellon Fellowships/1755 Massachusetts Ave., NW/Suite 500/Washington, DC 20036.
The Council on Library and Information Resources is an independent, nonprofit organization that works to expand access to information, however recorded and preserved, as a public good. Through publications, projects, and programs, CLIR works to maintain and improve access to information for generations to come. In partnership with other institutions, CLIR helps create services that expand the concept of "library" and supports the providers and preservers of information.
