Overview:

This is a one time, short-term fellowship intended to support individuals whose research would benefit from extensive use of the AGS Library and who wish to communicate their geographical research results to a broad, educated general audience. The funding for this opportunity comes from a US Department of Education National Resource Center grant and is intended to support faculty or PhD students from minority serving institutions.

Research projects supported by the Fellowship program must fall within the wide range of subject areas that could be supported by the Library’s collections. Examples include area studies, discovery and exploration, history of cartography, history of geographical thought, historical geography and geographical themes with a significant historical component, and any topic that would have policy, business or similar applications.

Awards of $600 per week for periods up to four-weeks will be provided to help defray the travel and living expenses relative to their research visit, at the conclusion of their residency. The grantee is expected to be in residence during the term of the award, which may be taken up any time of the year.
