The Institute for Advanced Study at Indiana University is now accepting applications for its 2020 Summer Repository Research Fellowship (SRRF). This program funds a two-week residential fellowship for a community scholar or faculty member from outside Indiana University Bloomington to conduct in-depth research in the collections of one or more of our partner repositories. The fellowship provides funding for travel costs, accommodation, per diem, and a two-week stipend.
This program is particularly appropriate for projects that involve ongoing collaboration with Indiana University Bloomington repositories or departments and/or research collaborations involving IUB faculty members. We especially welcome applications from Minority Serving Institutions, community colleges, and source communities.
This initiative is intended to advance research in the rich collections of the IU Bloomington campus and to build partnerships between scholars at and beyond IUB. Please note: This fellowship supports research in IU Bloomington’s unique collections; the application should focus on materials that cannot be accessed elsewhere. Projects concentrating on items that can be purchased, borrowed through interlibrary loan, or utilized effectively from a distance via digital surrogates are not within the scope of this program.
Applications are due by March 1st, 2020. Applicants must consult with a repository staff member about their proposed project and research logistics before submitting an application.
For application materials, a list of potential partner repositories, and additional information, please visit our website at https://ias.indiana.edu/research-support/fellows/summer-repo-research-fellowship/index.html
Questions about the fellowship should be addressed to the IAS Associate Director Suzanne Godby Ingalsbe at firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions about collections, access, and similar issues should be directed to repository staff members.
