One of the world's finest cultural archives, the Harry Ransom Center houses thirty-six million literary manuscripts, one million rare books, five million photographs, and more than a hundred thousand works of art.
Approximately forty fellowships are awarded annually by the Ransom Center to support scholarly research projects in all areas of the humanities.
Priority will be given to those proposals that concentrate on the center's collections and which require substantial on-site use of them.
All applicants, with the exception of those interested in dis- sertation fellowships, must be post-doctorates or possess an equivalent terminal degree or a substantial record of scholarly achievement.
United States citizens and foreign nationals are eligible to apply.
Each year the fellowship program has a special topic. This year's topic will be "In Times of War."
Special consideration will be given to research proposals that address and investigate the transatlantic cultural exchange of ideas, particularly those affected by times of war.
Research proposals do not have to relate to the special topic to be eligible for fellowship support.
The fellowships range from a month to two to four months, with stipends of $3,000 per month each.
Also available are travel stipends of $1,000 to $1,500 each, and dissertation fellowships with stipends of $1,200 each.
Deadline: February 1
