The Fenwick Fellowship is awarded annually to a Mason faculty member to pursue a research project that uses and enhances the University Libraries’ resources while advancing knowledge in his or her field. Applications for the 2013-2014 Fenwick Fellow program are being accepted through Friday, April 26. Tenured and tenure-track faculty at George Mason University are eligible and encouraged to submit proposals. University Libraries sponsor a public lecture by the Fenwick Fellow in the Spring term following the completed fellowship. The Fellowship provides
- one award of $5,000 to be used for the acquisition of library research materials that may be needed for the Fellow’s research project
- associated research costs (e.g., research assistant support, survey costs, defrayal of conference costs when specifically required for the Fellow’s research project, and other related incidental costs)
- use of an office in Fenwick Library for the term of the Fellowship (August 26, 2013 – August 8, 2014).
The Fenwick Fellowship application deadline is Friday, April 26, 2013. The 2013-2014 Fenwick Fellow will be announced at the start of the Fall academic term. For additional information, please contact Debra Hogan, Executive Assistant to the University Librarian, at 703-993-2491 or dhogan1 at gmu.edu.
