American Geographical Society Library Fellowships for 2013

The American Geographical Society Library, University of
Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries, welcomes applications for two short-term
research fellowship programs:

*McColl Research Program Fellowships*

This is a short-term fellowship program available to individuals who
wish to communicate their geographical research results to a broad,
educated general audience. Awards of $3300 for four-week fellowships
will be provided to support residencies for the purpose of conducting
research that makes direct use of the Library, and results in
publication in a mutually agreed outlet.

*Helen and John S. Best Research Fellowships*

Stipends of $400 per week, for periods up to 4 weeks, will be awarded to
help support residencies for the purpose of conducting research that
makes direct use of the Library.

The AGS Library is the former research library and map collection of the
American Geographical Society of New York. The library has strengths in
geography, cartography and related historical topics. An extensive
collection of books, periodicals, photos, maps, pamphlets, atlases,
globes, electronic data, and the archives of the Association of American
Geographers and the American Geographical Society are maintained at the
AGS Library.  In addition, researchers benefit from access to the UWM
Libraries print and online collections during their residency. Please
note that not all AGS Library materials are listed in the online
catalog, but finding aids and professional staff are available to assist.

Applications must be received by October 15, 2012. All fellowships are
tenable in 2013. For further information, access our website at:
