Long-term Residential Fellowships Program at the Folger Shakespeare Library

18 months of stipend support (2 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The Folger Institute of the Folger Shakespeare Library requests funds to support the Library’s long-term residential Fellowships Program. This 30-year-old Fellowships program animates the intellectual community at the Folger by bringing five Fellows per year to Washington, DC to conduct sustained research in our outstanding collections of English and Continental books and manuscripts from the period 1500-1800. The grant period will begin with selection in 2017; fellows will start their residencies in the academic year 2017-2018. Included in our request are funds to defray the expenses for lodging and travel associated with gathering an external committee of five scholars to select the Fellows. (edited by NEH staff)
