Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library Fellowship Programme

The Eccles Centre for American Studies at the British Library is currently accepting applications for its 2020 Fellowship programme.

These awards are offered to help support individuals wishing to visit London to use the British Library’s world-class collections relating to North America (the USA, Canada and the greater Caribbean).

We are keen to hear from all kinds of researchers who have the potential to produce something new, exciting, challenging and different as a result of their research into the North American collections of the British Library. We therefore welcome not only applicants from academic backgrounds working on scholarly research, but also from creative practitioners working on artistic and cultural projects. This means that research towards a doctoral degree, an academic monograph or article, a poetry collection, a theatre production, a body of painting or sculpture, a new fashion collection…all these kinds of projects and more will be considered. Funding is available to individuals based in the UK, Europe, Canada, the United States and the greater Caribbean.

More information on the Fellowship programme and how to apply is available here: The deadline for receipt of applications is 17 January 2020.
