The Harry Ransom Center, an internationally renowned humanities research library and museum at The University of Texas at Austin, annually awards more than 50 fellowships to support 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.
The fellowships range from one to three months, with stipends of $3,000 per month. Also available are $1,200 to $1,700 travel stipends and dissertation fellowships with a $1,500 stipend.
The Ransom Center invites applications for its 2015-2016 fellowships, which will support research visits that will take place during the period June 1, 2015-August 31, 2016. Applications must be submitted through the Center’s website by January 15, 2015, 5 p.m. CST. More information about the fellowships and the Ransom Center’s collections is available online at http://budurl.com/dua6.
Fellows will become part of a distinguished group of alumni. In the 25 years since the fellowship program’s inauguration, the Center has supported the research of more than 900 scholars from around the world through fellowship awards.
