MIT Libraries’ Department of Distinctive Collections (DDC) is seeking applicants for its 2023 Women@MIT Fellowship. We invite artists, activists, musicians, writers, and scholars who are engaged in the expansion and expression of knowledge to help inform the understanding of women in MIT’s history and the history of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. We are particularly interested in those who will apply the interdisciplinary lenses and methodologies of women’s studies, gender studies, and/or race and ethnic studies to their work.

The selected Fellows will work with the Women@MIT project archivist and other staff within MIT Libraries’ Department of Distinctive Collections. Successful candidates must be willing to engage in archival research either in person or in a remote environment. The fellowship is supported by a stipend of $5,000 for each Fellow, for research conducted between July 1 and September 30, 2023.

The deadline for applications is midnight May 20, 2023. For more information please go to our website. Please feel free to email Thera Webb, the Women@MIT Project Archivist, at twebb@mit.edu with any questions.
