Call for Applications for Clements Library Fellowships

The William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan welcomes applications for 2023-2024 research fellowships. The Clements’ holdings—books, manuscripts, pamphlets, maps, prints and views, newspapers, photographs, ephemera—are among the best in the world on almost any aspect of the American experience from 1492 through 1900, and support a diverse array of research projects.

In addition to the existing slate of fellowship opportunities, the Clements is proud to offer four additional new fellowships for the 2023-2024 cycle, which will support projects in American visual culture, Caribbean and Atlantic history, Great Lakes history, and graduate student research in any area represented in the Clements collections.

Particular strengths of the collection include: The Atlantic and Caribbean world, graphics and printed material, Great Lakes history, military history, gender and ethnicity, religion, the American Revolution, Native American history, slavery and antislavery, cartography, the Civil War, reform movements, travel and exploration, and others.

The Clements offers long term (four months), short term (one month), and week-long fellowships, as well as a digital fellowship with no residency requirement. Applications are due by January 15, 2023 for research to be undertaken between June 1, 2023-May 31, 2024.
