New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation Offers Archive Fellowships

Tuesday, January 8, 2019   (0 Comments)
Posted by: Evangeline Mee

The Jazz & Heritage Fellowships are intended for people who have already demonstrated a remarkable capacity to document cultural and artistic aspects of New Orleans and/or Louisiana, through productive scholarship via public presentations, publications, or exhibitions. Applicants are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the Jazz & Heritage Archive’s resource. Many of the collections are on the online catalog and can be found on their website. 

Applicants  are also welcome to speak to the Archivists or visit the Archive.

Eligibility

Applicants can be either an academic or an independent scholar with a considerable record of achievement.

How to Apply

When the application opens on Monday, January 14, 2019, go to the Foundation’s site in FluidReview and sign up to create a profile and start an application.

Fellowship Outline

A maximum of two fellowships will be awarded for $5,000 each. Incomplete or late applications will not be reviewed. Fellows must provide a mid-project report or presentation.

  •  Application open: Monday, January 14, 2019
  • Application deadline: Sunday, February 17, 2019

 The Fellowship program has three purposes. First, is to encourage the scholarly use of the collections in the Jazz & Heritage Archive. Second, is to support new documentation projects that produce primary resource material of lasting value for future research use in the Jazz & Heritage Archive. Third, is to encourage scholarship regionally.

While the Jazz & Heritage Archive resources should play a central role in the proposed research agenda, fellows are also encouraged to explore other research facilities in the Greater New Orleans area. Some of the Jazz & Heritage collections are not in our online catalog and all applicants are encouraged to call the Archive to discuss additional materials of interest.

Archive Mission

The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation Archive is an educational service that identifies, collects, preserves, and protects materials of cultural and historical significance to New Orleans and Louisiana as well as the records of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation and its assets and programs. These materials are to be used solely for scholarly research and interpretation and to support the mission of the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation.
