Warwick Transatlantic Fellowships
Jointly funded by Warwick's Renaissance Centre and Humanities Research Centre, this particular transatlantic fellowship is specifically for study at the Newberry Library in Chicago, and applicants have to make clear how they intend to make use of the Newberry collections. This Fellowship is intended to deepen and broaden the research links between Warwick and the Newberry Library. Applicants should be current Warwick doctoral students (not in their first year) or post-doctoral/early career fellows (up to 5 yrs post PhD) who can make an excellent research case for spending a short period of time at this North American institution. The Fellowship is intended to be short-term, e.g. 2 weeks, though fellows can of course stay longer if they wish. Full information and application details can be found on the HRC website, deadline for the current academic year is 21st Oct 2016. Reports by recipients of this award can be found here.
