Schomburg Center's Scholars-in-Residence Program

Three humanities fellowships each year for three years.

The Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture of The New York Public Library (NYPL) seeks $259,760 in NEH funds for its Scholars-in-Residence Program to support 6- and 12-month residency fellowships to at least 6 scholars over a 4-year period. The Library will match federal funds with an equal amount of private funding to support an additional 6 scholars. Established in 1986, Schomburg's Scholars Program has provided direct support for 91 scholars, including 34 recipients of NEH fellowships. NEH funding will enable the Center to continue to make fellowships available to humanities scholars whose work will benefit from extended access to the Center's rich and unique documentary resources on African American, African Diasporan, and African history and culture.
