The equivalent of three fellowships a year for two years.

The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture of The New York Public Library (NYPL) requests $191,051 in NEH funds for its Scholars-in-Residence Program to support 6 and 12 month residency fellowships to at least 9 scholars over a four-year period. Established in 1986, Schomburg's Scholars-in-Residence Program has provided direct support for 108 scholars, including 59 recipients of NEH fellowships. Since 1986, scholars have published 34 full-length monographs based on work completed during their residency; 15 of these were written by NEH fellows. NEH funding will allow the Center to continue to make fellowships available to humanities scholars whose work will directly benefit from extended access to the Center's rich and unique documentary resources on African Diasporan and African history and culture, as well as to the collections of the other 3 NYPL Research Libraries.
