Fenwick Fellow Program Expands

University Libraries is now accepting applications for this year’s Fenwick Fellow competition. The Fellowship is awarded annually to a Mason faculty member to support a research project that uses and enhances the Libraries’ resources while advancing knowledge in his or her field.

Beginning this year, up to two Fellowships of $5,000 each may be awarded. Program guidelines have been expanded to include funding for an additional fellowship for a project proposal that specifically aligns with the Libraries’ activities in the area of digital scholarship.

Application deadline is Friday, May 5, 2017. The awardee(s) will be announced at the start of the Fall academic term. University Libraries sponsor a public lecture by each Fenwick Fellow in the Spring term following the completed fellowship.

Detailed prorgam guidelines and information are available on the library’s website (library.gmu.edu/about/fellow/apply). Questions? Please contact Debra Hogan, dhogan1 at gmu.edu
