Scholars-in-Residence Program

Eighteen months of stipend support a year for three years at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture. Grant funds support fellows' stipends and help defray expenses related to the selection of fellows.

The New York Public Library and its Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture respectfully request a grant of $327,000 to support stipend and selection expenses for its Scholars-in-Residence Program from January 1, 2013 through June 30, 2016. Since 1986, the Scholars-in-Residence Program has encouraged emerging scholarship in the fields of African, African American, and African Diaspora studies by offering fellowships of six-months or a year to scholars whose work can benefit from extended access to the rich resources of the Schomburg Center and NYPL's three other research centers. With funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Program will support the fellowships of its 2013-2014, 2014-2015, and 2015-2016 classes of Fellows.
