Short-term residencies at libraries and archives are an opportunity for scholars to dedicate themselves full-time to their research. Many libraries offer residential fellowships to encourage researchers to use their collections. Such opportunities are a good way to get your feet wet in proposal-writing and will help you establish a funding track record, both of which can help you to secure larger and more prestigious fellowships in the future. Dan Kirschenbaum of ACS has compiled a sampling of short-term residential fellowships with deadlines coming up next semester. Contact OSP if you intend to apply.
