The Helen and John S. Best Research Fellowship program is intended to help bring to the American Geographical Society (AGS) Library scholars who reside beyond commuting distance of UWM, and whose research would benefit from extensive use of the Library. John S. Best was, for many years, a prominent Milwaukee attorney, book-collector and conservationist. The Best family members are longtime supporters of UWM and the UWM Libraries.
Research projects supported by the Fellowship program must fall within the wide range of subject areas that could be supported by the Library. Examples include history of cartography (including cartobibliography), history of geographic thought, discovery and exploration, historical geography, and other history themes with a significant geographical component.
Fellowships can last up to four weeks and provide a weekly stipend of $400.00 ($1,600 maximum)* to help defray the travel and living expenses relative to the residency.
You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.
- Candidates for Fellowships are either established scholars, or doctoral students who have completed their course work and are at the stage of writing their dissertations.
