Opportunities with the Omohundro Institute

With support from the Lapidus Initiative, the Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture has entered into an international partnership that will ultimately provide 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.

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 will be required to undergo a security clearance before beginning work at Windsor Castle.

Fellowships will be offered in three rounds during the 2016-2017 academic year. Deadlines are November 7, February 20, and May 8.

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).
