Fellowships of $4,000 to USA, Canada, and International scholars holding a Ph.D. and artists pursuing research to conduct studies using the funding source's digital resource library. The purpose of the opportunity is to allow researchers to set aside designated research time without having to worry about other work obligations.
Virtual research fellowships are available for both scholarly and artistic projects. These fellowships support one month of work. They provide fellows with the resources and opportunities necessary to advance their research outside of the context of in-person work at the Folger. This can include but is not limited to support for time to write, access to digital resources, reproduction and permission fees for images of rare materials, time to organize notes and images, and a digital project. Fellowship funds may also support work-life balance such as childcare or summer course releases to facilitate research and writing.
Virtual Fellowships for Scholarly Research:
Applicants must make their own best cases for how a one-month virtual fellowship can provide vital support to pursue or advance their research. Here are some examples of scenarios an applicant might propose to use their fellowship funds:
In all cases, fellowship funds are to support full-time work on a research project. Funds may be used to relieve personal and/or professional constraints to full-time research.
Virtual Fellowships for Artistic Research:
Virtual fellowships for artistic research are open to artists working in all media whose work would benefit from significant primary research and that is related to the histories, concepts, art, and objects of the early modern world. This includes, but is not limited to, visual artists, writers, dramaturgs, playwrights, performers, filmmakers, and composers. For context, here are some generalized examples from the 2022-23 cohort.
Estimated Size of Grant:
Please note, virtual fellows must take their month-long fellowship between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024.
