Douglas W. Bryant Fellowship Now Accepting Applications

The Fellowship is awarded annually to Harvard librarians to support costs associated with independent scholarly research.


October, 23 2012—The Douglas W. Bryant Fellowship Program is now accepting applications. The Fellowship, established with the support from the late Charles Tanenbaum, Class of 1934, is awarded to individual Harvard librarians to help fund direct costs associated with their independent scholarly research. The Fellowship supports research by Harvard’s professional library staff in bibliography, historical aspects of librarianship and some research outside of the field of librarianship.   


Applications are due Friday, February 8. An informational open house about the fellowship is scheduled for Thursday November, 15 from 12 to 2 pm in the Wadsworth House conference room.  Jury members will be there to answer questions. Librarians interested in applying for the Fellowship should stop by anytime during the open house. Find more information about the fellowship, application guidelines and procedures here.


“The Bryant Fellowship has supported a broad range of fascinating research work that Harvard librarians take on outside their every day jobs,” said Laura Peimer, manuscript processor for the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America and Bryant Fellowship Jury co-chair. “The Bryant Jury looks forward to the diversity of projects that will appear in this new round of applications.”
