The Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) at Indiana University (IU) is now accepting applications for its 2018 Summer Repository Research Fellowship. In partnership with repositories on the IU Bloomington campus and supported by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, the program funds a short-term fellowship for a faculty member or community scholar to conduct in-depth research in the collections of one or more of our partner repositories. Applicants from Minority Serving Institutions, community colleges, and 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.

Please note: This fellowship is intended to support research in IU Bloomington’s unique collections; the application should focus on materials that cannot be accessed elsewhere. Projects utilizing items that can be purchased, borrowed through interlibrary loan, or utilized effectively from a distance via digital surrogates are not within the scope of this program.

Summer 2018 partner repositories include the Archives of African American Music and Culture, the Archives of Traditional Music, the University Archives, the Black Film Center/Archive, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology, the Indiana Geological Survey, the IU Herbarium, the Kinsey Institute, the IU Libraries, the IU Paleontology Collection, the Jerome Hall Law Library, the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, the Lilly Library, the Sage Collection, and the Wylie House Museum.

Applications are due by March 23, 2018.
