Each year, the Bibliographical Society of America funds a number of fellowships designed to promote bibliographical inquiry and research. Supported projects may range chronologically from clay tablets and papyrus rolls to contemporary literary texts and born-digital materials, from any geographic region. Topics relating to books and manuscripts in any field and of any period are eligible for consideration as long as they include analysis of the physical object – that is, the handwritten, printed, or other textual artifact – as historical evidence.
The BSA encourages applications from scholars, librarians, collectors, booksellers, archivists, curators, and others of any race, color, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, creed, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, veteran status or any other legally protected class status. BSA seeks to promote equity, inclusion, and diversity within the field, and encourages proposals that offer new research on previously under- or misrepresented groups or individuals.
Applications are due on November 1, 2019.
