The University Libraries is now accepting applications for the 2022-23 Fenwick Fellows program. The Fellowship is awarded annually to eligible Mason faculty members to pursue a research project that uses and enhances the Libraries’ resources while advancing knowledge in their field.
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’ ever-increasing initiatives in the area of digital scholarship (e.g., digital humanities, data-focused research, development of digital content and curation). As always, the selection committee will be especially interested in research projects that make substantial use of the Libraries’ resources and services.
In all cases, the awarded funds are to be designated towards the acquisition of library research materials and/or digital infrastructure and tools that may be needed for the Fellow’s research project, as well as for 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). In addition, the Fellow is given use of a technology-equipped office in Fenwick Library for the term of the Fellowship (August 22, 2022– August 4, 2023).
The deadline for applications is Wednesday, June 15, 2022. The 2022-2023 Fenwick Fellow(s) will be announced at the start of the Fall 2022 semester.
