2016–2017 Harry Ransom Center Research Fellowships





The Harry Ransom Center will award approximately 70 fellowships for 2016–2017 for projects that require substantial on-site use of its collections. The fellowships support research in all areas of the humanities, including literature, photography, film, art, the performing arts, music, and cultural history.


Application deadline: January 15, 2016, 5 P.M. CST

Available fellowships include:
ONE TO THREE MONTH FELLOWSHIPS • $3,000 PER MONTH
One- to three-month fellowships are available for post-doctoral or independent scholars whose projects require extensive work with the Ransom Center's collections.

TRAVEL STIPENDS • $1,200 (Domestic) • $1,700 (International)
Travel stipends are available for post-doctoral or independent scholars whose projects require less than one month's work with the Center's collections. Travel stipends may not be combined with other Ransom Center fellowships.

DISSERTATION FELLOWSHIPS • $1,500
Dissertation fellowships, generously supported by the Creekmore and Adele Fath Charitable Foundation and The University of Texas at Austin Office of Graduate Studies, are available for graduate students whose doctoral dissertations require use of the Center's collections.
The Center gratefully acknowledges the principals of the supporting endowments and annual sponsors.

Eligibility
United States citizens and foreign nationals are eligible to apply. Previous recipients of Ransom Center fellowships are eligible to reapply after two full fellowship cycles have passed.
Applicants for one- to three-month fellowships and travel stipends must have a Ph.D. or be an independent scholar with a substantial record of achievement. If the Ph.D. is in-progress at the time of application, the proposal and letters of recommendation must clearly indicate completion by June 1, 2016.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES
A complete application consists of a three-page proposal and one or two letters of recommendation. These materials must be uploaded to the Ransom Center's online application system as PDF files by the application deadline. To begin your application for a 2016–2017 fellowship, create a fellowship account. Upon successful creation of your account, you will receive your fellowship account number, which you must use to submit your proposal, and which your referee(s) must use to submit the required letter(s) of recommendation.
