Fellowship - Doctoral Fellowships in Archival Studies

2010 Doctoral Fellowships in Archival Studies

About the Fellowship

Doctoral Fellowships are currently available through a new
eight-campus initiative for individuals who are interested
in pursuing careers as educators and scholars in the field
of Archival Studies and who would be entering a doctoral
program in Fall 2010.

The Archival Education and Research Fellowships are aimed
at strengthening doctoral-level education in Archival
Studies, building the cohort of archival educators and
increasing its diversity, and promoting a broad base of
rigorous archival scholarship.

Before applying for the Fellowship, applicants are
encouraged to review the scope of the eight participating
programs and to consider applying only to those that best
match their personal intellectual interests. Visit our web
address below to learn further information about the
participating institutions and their specializations in
Archival Studies, including links to their program's

The Doctoral Fellowships are open to all citizens or
permanent residents of the U.S. who exhibit interest in
the field of Archival Studies, broadly defined, and
evidence of the ability to excel as a scholar and educator
in the field. Applications are particularly encouraged
from individuals who are of American Indian/Alaska Native,
Asian, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino or Native
Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander heritage.

Applicants need not have received a master's degree in an
Archival Studies, LIS or other field, unless that is
required by any of the participating programs to which
they are applying. However, applications will be ranked
based on evidence of the applicant's commitment to
Archival Studies education, potential to make a strong
scholarly contribution to the field of Archival Studies,
and commitment to diversity within Archival Studies
education and scholarship.
