Fellowships: The Bibliographical Society of America

The Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) is accepting applications for multiple fellowship opportunities. The BSA funds a number of fellowships to promote inquiry and research in books and other textual artifacts in both traditional and emerging formats.

Projects may include establishing a text or studying the history of book or manuscript production, publication, distribution, collecting, or reading, and the history of bibliographical study itself. Fellowship awards may be used to fund travel to collections and other expenses associated with research, publication, or other scholarly outcomes related to the topic for which the award was made. Projects that are primarily enumerative (lists) will be considered for funding provided the proposal states a clear objective, describes the need for such work within its field, and specifies the extent to which textual objects will be described.

The BSA offers more than a dozen fellowships supporting a broad range of bibliographical pursuits. In addition to the broad array of Fellowship opportunities we have offered in the past, the Society is pleased to announce two new categories of fellowships supporting research by midwestern bibliographers and collections professionals (respectively) this year thanks to generous support from The Caxton Club of Chicago and the Peck-Stacpoole Foundation.
