Bloomington, IN—The Indiana University Institute for Advanced Study is pleased to announce a new partnership with repositories on the Bloomington campus. Beginning in Summer 2015, this program will fund a short-term Summer Research Fellowship for a visiting scholar to conduct in-depth research in the collections of one or more of our partner repositories. Applications from researchers at Minority Serving Institutions, community colleges and in source communities are welcome. Preference will be given to applicants who are collaborating with Indiana University Bloomington faculty members.
This initiative is intended to support research in the rich collections of the IU Bloomington campus and to build partnerships between scholars at and beyond IUB. The fellowship provides funding for travel costs, accommodation, per diem, and a two-week stipend. Summer 2015 partner repositories include the Archives of African American Music and Culture, the Archives of Traditional Music, the Black Film Center/Archive, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology, the IU Herbarium, the IU Libraries, the IU Paleontology Collection, the Jerome Hall Law Library, and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures. Applications are due by June 1, 2015. For application materials and additional information, please visit the website of the IU Institute for Advanced Study.
