 The University of Chicago Library invites applications for short-term
research fellowships for the summer of 2014. Any visiting researcher
residing more than 100 miles from Chicago, and whose project requires
on-site consultation of University of Chicago Library collections,
primarily archives, manuscripts or printed materials in the Special
Collections Research Center, is eligible. Support for beginning scholars is
a priority of the program. Applications in the fields of late nineteenth-
or early twentieth-century physics or physical chemistry, or
nineteenth-century classical opera, will receive special consideration.

Awards will be made based on an evaluation of the research proposal and the
applicant's ability to complete it successfully.  Applicants should explain
why the project cannot be conducted without on-site access to the original
materials and to what extent University of Chicago Library collections are
central to the research.  Up to $3,000 of support will be awarded to help
cover projected travel, living, and research expenses.  Applications from
women, minorities, and persons with disabilities are encouraged.

*The deadline for applications is February 22, 2014.  Notice of awards will
be made by March 15, 2014, for use between June 1, 2014 and October 1,

*Applicants must provide the following information:*

§  A cover letter (not to exceed one page) including the project title, a
brief summary, estimated dates of on-site research; and a budget for
travel, living, and research expenses during the period of on-site research

§  A research proposal not to exceed three double-spaced pages. Applicants
should address specifically the relationship between their proposed project
and the primary sources to be consulted in the Special Collections Research

§  A curriculum vitae of no longer than two pages

§  Two letters of support from academic or other scholars. References may
be sent with the application or separately.
