2020-21 Fenwick Fellowship Deadline Changed

Dean of Libraries and University Librarian John Zenelis has announced that University Libraries is now accepting applications for this year’s Fenwick Fellow competition. The Fellowship is awarded annually to eligible Mason faculty members to support a research project that uses and enhances the Libraries’ resources while advancing knowledge in his or her field. View list of past recipients and their research projects.

Up to two Fellowships of $5,000 each may be awarded; expanded program guidelines include funding for an additional fellowship for a project proposal that specifically aligns with the Libraries’ initiatives in the area of digital scholarship.

Application period is Monday, March 23 through Monday, June 1, 2020. The awardee(s) will be announced at the start of the Fall academic term. University Libraries sponsor a public lecture by the  Fenwick Fellow(s) in the Spring term following the completed fellowship.
