ASECS Joint Library Fellowships

The American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies has partnered with the seventeen research institutions listed below to jointly fund fellowships for projects in eighteenth-century studies. ASECS also supports research at other institutions through the ASECS Travel Grants(https://asecsoffice.wixsite.com/asecsawards/travelgrants) program.

 

Scholars of eighteenth-century studies who hold a PhD or are graduate students working on their dissertations are eligible for ASECS library fellowships. Applicants need not be members of ASECS when submitting their applications, but they must be members of the Society in good standing for a fellowship to be awarded.

 

Unless indicated below, applications for the library fellowships should be submitted directly to the library. For due dates and application materials, consult the institutions’ websites. Please note that members may accept only one ASECS travel grant or fellowship in any given year (1 July – 30 June).
