Pforzheimer Fellowship Program Confirmed for 2015

Four graduate students in the humanities will be selected to take on library projects.


December 16, 2014—Following a successful program launch this year, the Harvard Library will welcome its second cohort of Pforzheimer Fellows in the summer of 2015.

The program, which seeks to foster intellectual and professional partnerships between professional librarians and graduate students in the humanities and social sciences, is named in honor of Carl H. Pforzheimer III and his generous contributions to Harvard and its libraries.

Interested graduate students in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences must state their interest in one of 16 proposed library projects from nine repositories and three departments of the Harvard Library. Projects touch on the intellectual issues of librarianship via work on collections and services. Read more about the program, proposed projects and applications here.

The deadline for students to apply is March 1, 2015; the program runs from June 1 through July 31, 2015. The 2015 Fellows will be awarded a grant of $5,000 each and will be announced in the spring.
