With support from the Lapidus Initiative, the Omohundro Institute provides opportunities for up to eight scholars each year to do research in the extraordinary trove of Georgian materials housed at the Royal Archives in Windsor Castle’s Round Tower.
The OI’s month-long Georgian Papers fellowships support research on transatlantic and early American topics. Fellows explore the collections for their own research while offering invaluable information for the team of archivists and librarians working on archival organization and cataloging. Fellows also have the opportunity for collegial exchange with relevant departments and faculty at King’s College London.
The fellowship offers a $2,500 stipend with up to $1,500 in additional support for travel.
Fellowships are restricted to U.S. or U.K. citizens. Successful applicants are required to undergo a security clearance before beginning work at Windsor Castle.
Fellowships will be offered in two rounds during the 2018-2019 academic year. Deadlines are November 1, 2018, and March 1, 2019.
Please apply for the fellowships via the Omohundro website.
Questions about the fellowship may be addressed to Karin Wulf via Martha Howard at the Omohundro Institute (martha.howard at wm.edu).
