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. Tenured, tenure-track, and term (multi-year appointment) faculty at George Mason University are eligible and encouraged to submit proposals. It is requested that previous Fenwick Fellow recipients do not submit proposals.
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, as well as 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 29, 2016 – August 11, 2017).
The Fenwick Fellowship application deadline is Wednesday, April 20, 2016. The 2016-2017 Fenwick Fellow will be announced at the start of the Fall academic term. University Libraries sponsor a public lecture by the Fenwick Fellow in the Spring term following the completed fellowship.
Details on the application process are online. For additional information, please contact Debra Hogan, Executive Assistant to the Dean of Libraries and University Librarian, at 703-993-2491 or dhogan1 at gmu.edu.
