The Robert. L. Platzman Memorial Fellowships provide up to $3,000 to researchers who live more than 100 miles outside of Chicago and who are workign on projects that require on-site consultation of University of Chicago Library collections, particularly those that are housed within the Special Collections Research Center. Support for beginning scholars is a priority of the program, and special consideration will be given to applications in the fields of late 19th or early 20th-century physics or physical chemistry, or to 19th-century classical opera.
Applications for the 2017 season are due by February 17, 2017, with announcment of recipients to be made by March 20, 2017. Fellowships will be used between June 1, 2017, and September 29, 2017.
