2010 Doctoral Fellowships in Archival Studies
Deadline for Application: January 4, 2010
About the Fellowship
Doctoral Fellowships are currently available through a new eight-campus initiative for individuals who are interested in pursuing careers as educators and scholars in the field of Archival Studies and who would be entering a doctoral program in Fall 2010.
The Archival Education and Research Institute (AERI) Fellowships are aimed at strengthening doctoral-level education in Archival Studies, building the cohort of archival educators and increasing its diversity, and promoting a broad base of rigorous archival scholarship.
Before applying for the Fellowship, applicants are encouraged to review the scope of the eight participating programs and to consider applying only to those that best match their personal intellectual interests. To learn further information about the participating institutions and their specializations in Archival Studies, including links to their program’s homepage, visithttp://aeri.gseis.ucla.edu/institutions.htm.
The Doctoral Fellowships are open to all citizens or permanent residents of the U.S. who exhibit interest in the field of Archival Studies, broadly defined, and evidence of the ability to excel as a scholar and educator in the field. Applications are particularly encouraged from individuals who are of American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino or Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander heritage.
Applicants need not have received a master’s degree in an Archival Studies, LIS or other field, unless that is required by any of the participating programs to which they are applying. However, applications will be ranked based on evidence of the applicant’s commitment to Archival Studies education, potential to make a strong scholarly contribution to the field of Archival Studies, and commitment to diversity within Archival Studies education and scholarship.
