The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library at Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia, is accepting applications for funding to travel to the Library and utilize its holdings. We offer awards and fellowships in five main collecting areas: English-language literature, poetry, African American history and culture, Southern history and culture, and modern politics, as well as subject specific funding.
Of particular note is the recently established Award for Research in Black Print Culture. Funded by Rose Library curator Randall K. Burkett and his wife, Nancy, the award supports researchers exploring the Rose Library’s holdings of rare manuscript, ephemeral, photographic, and print materials produced by and for African Americans. The award is designed to encourage research and writing on the history and significance of black printing, authorship, and publishing. Stipend up to $1,000 annually.
The application deadline is February 15, 2017, and full details may be found at http://rose.library.emory.edu/research-learning/fellowships-awards/visiting-researchers/index.html.
