The American Philosophical Society (APS) Library & Museum is pleased to announce a pilot project supporting research by Tribal College and University (TCU) faculty and staff. These short-term fellowships are part of the Andrew W. Mellon Native American Scholars Initiative that fosters the development of the next generation of Native American and allied students and scholars through fellowships, internships, and grants. They are intended to support research by TCU affiliates seeking to examine materials at the APS Library & Museum in support of individual or group projects, curriculum development, language revitalization, and other capacity-building initiatives. 

The fellowships are open to individuals or may be used to enable a group of researchers to visit the APS in Philadelphia. Applications for these fellowships should be initiated by TCU faculty and staff (including librarians) pursuing individual research, as well as those who may wish to coordinate group projects that include TCU students, Indigenous community members, elders, teachers, knowledge keepers, tribal officials, traditional leaders, museum and archive professionals, scholars, and others, regardless of academic background.

Deadline: April 17, 2020.
