On Friday, November 16th, Barbara Heritage, the Virginia Rare Book School Assistant Director & Curator of Collections, will visit Harvard to meet with prospective applicants for the Rare Book School’s Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography. The session will take place from 2:30-4:30 at 12 Quincy Street, Baker Center 133. All attendees must RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule an appointment.
The Mellon Fellowship provides support and resources to early-career scholars in humanities fields to enhance their bibliographical skills and to explore future research possibilities with material texts. Fellows receive funding for coursework at the Rare Book School, travel expenses for trips to special collections repositories, and a living stipend over a three-year period. Applications are accepted from doctoral candidates (post exams), post-doctoral fellows, and junior (untenured) faculty at U.S. institutions.
Further information about the Fellowship can be found at the Rare Book School website.
