ACLS Fellowships

ACLS has a number of fellowships and applications are due by September 30, 2009. The information on the fellowship programs won’t be updated until July, but it’s not too early to start planning a project. I’m hoping that someone is already planning a fellowship proposal on Caribbean Studies, Florida history, newspapers, children’s literature, or another topic that connects easily to the the Digital Library of the Caribbean, the Florida History and Heritage Digital Collections, the Florida Digital Newspaper Library, the Baldwin Library of Historical Children’s Literature Digital Collection or another of the collections supported by UFDC.
The ACLS/SSRC/NEH International and Area Studies Fellowships, the ACLS Collaborative Research Fellowships, and the ACLS Digital Innovation Fellowships could all support research using digital collections and libraries in UFDC and I’m happy to provide information on any of the collections to anyone planning or considering submitting a fellowship application to study the materials in or to conduct research with the digital collections and libraries in UFDC.
