Phillips Library Research Fellowships
Up to six Research Fellowships will be available to scholars who wish to pursue research and publication on topics that make effective and creative use of the library and its special collections. Fellowships are open to advanced scholars, graduate students, independent scholars, and library and museum professionals. Fellows are expected to make the use of library collections their primary focus during a two to eight week timeframe. Fellows will also be asked to write a blog for the library or to present their research at a brown bag lunch. A stipend of $800.00 will be awarded at the conclusion of the fellowship. Additionally, free housing in a studio apartment on the museum campus in Salem, MA, may also be available. The Phillips Library is currently located in a temporary facility in Peabody, MA; successful applicants will need to address transportation between Salem and Peabody.
Frances E. Malamy Fellowship
One recipient will be awarded the Frances E. Malamy Fellowship to perform independent scholarly research at the library within a three month time-frame. Research must include use of archival materials held at the Phillips Library, and/or archiving activities under the direction of the Phillips Library staff. The recipient will receive a $5,500 award, payable in two equal installments, at the middle and conclusion of his/her residency. The recipient will be expected to write a blog for the library or to present his/her research at a brown bag lunch. This fellowship does not include housing.
