The William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan is accepting applications for research fellowships for the 2021-22 cycle. Specializing in pre-1900 American history and culture, the Clements Library's primary resources (books, manuscripts, prints, maps, photographs, and much more) support diverse research topics. Particular strengths include: graphic arts, gender and ethnicity, religion, the American Revolution, Native American history, slavery and antislavery, Atlantic history, the Caribbean, cartography, reform movements, travel and exploration, among others. Sources relating to business and economics can be found across the collecting divisions.
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 to support the digitization of one of our collections. Applications are due by March 1, 2021, for research to be undertaken between August 30th, 2021, and September 1st, 2022.
