2022-2023 William L. Clements Library Research Fellowships

Jayne Ptolemy Discussion

The William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan is now accepting applications for 2022-2023 research fellowships. The Clements’ holdings—books, manuscripts, pamphlets, maps, prints and views, newspapers, photographs, ephemera—are among the best in the world on almost any aspect of the American experience from 1492 through 1900, and support a diverse array of research projects.
Particular strengths include: military history, gender and ethnicity, religion, the American Revolution, Native American history, slavery and antislavery, Atlantic history, the Caribbean, cartography, the Civil War, reform movements, travel and exploration, among others. Sources relating to the West can be found across the collecting divisions, and we invite you to explore our recent publication on The Best of the West to get a feel for collections in this subject area.

The Clements offers long term (three months), short term (one month), and week-long fellowships, as well as a digital fellowship with no residency requirement. Applications are due by January 15, 2022 for research to be undertaken between April 1, 2022 through March 30, 2023.
