Fellowship / Historical Slant

Taryn Chase, a Goucher grad, passed along this information. Sounds like a fabulous opportunity.

Fellowships for Creative and Performing Artists and Writers

You'll find links to the application, etc., along with the following information, at the Web site.

The American Antiquarian Society (AAS), a national research library and learned society of American history and culture, is calling for applications for visiting fellowships for historical research by creative and performing artists, writers, film makers, journalists, and other persons whose goals are to produce imaginative, nonformulaic works dealing with pre-20th-century American history. Successful applicants are those whose work is for the general public rather than for academic or educational audiences. The society's goal in sponsoring this program is to multiply and improve the ways in which an understanding of history is communicated to the American people.

Fellowship projects may include (but are not limited to):

# historical novels
# performance of historical music or drama
# poetry
# documentary films
# television programs
# radio broadcasts
# plays
# libretti
# screenplays
# magazine or newspaper articles
# costume designs
# set designs
# illustrations and other graphic arts
# book designs
# sculpture
# paintings
# other works of fine and applied art
# nonfiction works of history designed for general audiences of adults or children

The fellowships will provide the recipients with the opportunity for a period of uninterrupted research, reading, and collegial discussion at the Society, located in Worcester, Massachusetts. At least three fellowships will be awarded for residence of four weeks at the Society at any time during the period January l through December 31. The stipend will be $1,200, plus an allowance for travel expenses. Applicants are encouraged to rent a room and prepare their meals in the Society's Goddard-Daniels House, an attractive and spacious historic mansion located directly across the street from the AAS library.

Funding for this program began with a grant to AAS from the Lila Wallace-Reader's Digest Fund. Additional funding for the awards is derived from income from endowments established by the Robert and Charlotte Baron Fellowship and the William Randolph Hearst Foundation.

Feel free to pass this information along to anyone you think might be interested.
