The American Trust for the British Library and the Virginia Fox Stern Center for the History of the Book in the Renaissance at Johns Hopkins University
2022-2023 Transatlantic Fellowship
The ATBL’s Transatlantic Fellowship Program supports transatlantic research projects that make use of collections in any department in the British Library as well as those housed with a partner institution in the United States. The Program especially targets graduate students, recent PhDs, early career scholars, adjunct faculty, librarians, or curatorial staff who otherwise do not have access to departmental research funds.
This 2022-2023 Transatlantic Fellowship focuses on pre-modern and early modern books and manuscripts scholarship. It is designed to support at least four weeks of research between both the British Library and the Virginia Fox Stern Center for the History of the Book in the Renaissance, located in the Sheridan Libraries of Johns Hopkins University, with at least one week of research time at each institution. A projected schedule of study will be outlined as part of the Fellowship application. The successful applicant, hailing from any academic discipline, will propose a research project that makes equal use of pre-1800 books and manuscript materials in the British Library collections as well as in the Virginia Fox Stern Center.
The amount of the Fellowship will be $5,000 USD. The Fellowship is open to United States citizens or permanent residents who are doctoral candidates or post-doctoral researchers 18 years or older. The award will come from the ATBL and is meant to be applied to transportation and lodging expenses. In addition to the $5,000 USD award, the Fellow will join the ATBL as a Library Fellow supporter for the calendar year following completion of the Fellowship Program.
