Fellowships of $3,500 to USA, Canada, and International scholars holding a PhD and archivists, creative artists, curators, dramaturgs, filmmakers, librarians, performers, and playwrights for research projects related to Shakespeare or the culture of the early modern world. The four-week fellowships should make use of collections, archives, libraries, or museums. Due to a major building renovation project beginning in 2020, the Folger Institute is offering fellowships for research and writing away from the Folger during the construction period.
Folger Institute is committed to continuing its support of collections-based research, and to providing scholars with the resources they need to pursue and advance their work. In 2020-2021, Folger research fellowships will place value on many different forms of scholarly enterprise and places to pursue it.
In their applications, scholars should make a strong case for their proposed topic’s importance, its relevance to a field of study broadly supported by the Folger Library’s collections and programs, and the originality and sophistication of its approach. They should also describe the proposed location(s) of their work – either at home or abroad – with a justification of why and how this agenda will advance their project.
These research fellowships may be taken up at any archive or library of the applicant’s choosing. The Folger has also arranged for a select number of archives, collections, libraries, and museums, without research fellowship endowments of their own, to host Folger fellows at their institutions.
