FOLGER INSTITUTE SHORT-TERM RESIDENTIAL AND VIRTUAL FELLOWSHIPS FOR 2023-2024
Each year the Folger Institute awards research fellowships to create a high-powered, multidisciplinary community of inquiry. This community of researchers may come from different fields, and their projects may find different kinds of expression. But our researchers share cognate interests in the history and literature, art and performance, philosophy, religion, and politics of the early modern world.
Short-term Residential Fellowships
Please note, for the 2023-24 fellowship year, short-term residential fellowships may only be taken between January 2024 and June 2024.
Short-term residential fellowships support scholars and artists whose work would benefit from significant primary research onsite at the Folger for one, two, or three months, with a monthly stipend of $4,000. These fellowships are designed to support a concentrated period of full-time work on research projects that draw on the strengths of the Folger’s collections and programs.
Short-term Virtual Fellowships
Please note, virtual fellows must take their month-long fellowship between July 1, 2023, and June 30, 2024.
Virtual, or non-residential, research fellowships are available to support both scholarly and artistic projects for a period of one month, with a stipend of $4,000. Virtual fellowships are designed for individuals who cannot, for a variety of reasons, travel or commit to a residential research period at this time, but whose projects will be significantly advanced by the funding of access to primary sources online, dedicated time to work, and the validations of a fellowship award.
The deadline for Short-term Residential and Virtual Fellowship applications is 15 January 2023.
