The J.B. Harley Research Fellowships in the History of Cartography

The Harley Fellowships - the only one of their kind in Europe - provide support of up to four weeks (normally at GBP 400 per week) for those, from any discipline, doing the equivalent of post-graduate level work in the historical map collections of the United Kingdom.  Web site:


For the period 2013-2016, in addition to the normal J. B. Harley Fellowship awards open to anyone pursuing advanced research in the history of cartography, there are also Harley-Delmas Fellowships for research in the history of cartography during the European Renaissance to the Enlightenment c.1400-c.1800, kindly funded by the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation (at the equivalent to GBP 600 per week). All applicants should apply for a J. B. Harley Fellowship; eligibility for a Harley-Delmas award will be decided by the Selection Committee of the Trustees. 


The extended closing date for applications is 8 JANUARY 2016.  The Fellowship website has an Application page that should provide all the necessary information as well as answering many frequently asked questions: >.
