The Beinecke Library offers, on a competitive basis, fellowships to support graduate students to pursue onsite research with the collections for one to four months. We welcome applications from students enrolled in graduate programs at Yale and at any other university or college, locally or globally. The fellowship program aims to facilitate research by the broadest possible group of students, regardless of institutional association, race, cultural background, ability, sexual orientation, gender, or socioeconomic status. Students applying for a fellowship should be at an advanced stage in their research or prospectus development and propose a fully conceptualized project related to their degree program. Applications from students utilizing traditional methods of archival and bibliographic research are encouraged as are applications from students who wish to pursue creative, interdisciplinary, and non-traditional approaches to conducting research in the collections.

Eligibility

  • Applicants must be enrolled in a graduate degree program (PhD, MFA, MA, MPhil, MBA, etc.).
  • Students applying for a fellowship should be at an advanced stage in their research or prospectus development and have a fully conceptualized project related to their degree program.
  • Researchers not currently enrolled in a graduate degree program should apply to theĀ short-term research fellowship.
