2012-2013 Research Fellowships at the John Carter Brown Library

The John Carter Brown Library (JCB), an independently funded institution for
advanced research at Brown University, will award approximately forty residential
Fellowships for the year July 1, 2012, to June 30, 2013. The Library contains one
of the world's premier collections of primary materials related to the discovery,
exploration, and settlement of the New World to 1825: books, maps, newspapers,
and other printed objects, including many in languages indigenous to the
Americas, north and south. JCB Fellowships are open to doctoral candidates,
scholars, and writers working on all aspects of the Americas in the early modern
period, with preference given to those applicants who might make best use of the
Library's resources. Both short- and long-term Fellowships are available.

Short-term Fellowships are for two to four months with a monthly stipend of
$2,100. These are open to American and foreign citizens who are engaged in pre-
or post-doctoral, or independent, research. Graduate students must have passed
their preliminary or general examinations at the time of application.

Long-term Fellowships are for five to ten months with a monthly stipend of
$4,200. Some of these are funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities
(NEH), for which an applicant must be an American citizen or have been resident
in the US for the three years preceding the application deadline. The JCB has
other long-term fellowships for which all nationalities are eligible. Graduate
students are not eligible for long-term Fellowships.

Recipients of all Fellowships must relocate to Providence and be in continuous
residence at the JCB for the full term of the award. Rooms are available for
Fellows to rent at Fiering House (which is reserved just for JCB Fellows), a
beautifully restored 1869 house four blocks from the Library. (Those living within
commuting distance of the Library - within a 45-mile radius -- are ordinarily not
eligible for JCB Fellowships.)

The deadline for both short- and long-term fellowships is December 15, 2011.
