New England Regional Fellowship Consortium
The New England Regional Fellowship Consortium, a collaboration of eighteen major cultural agencies, will offer at least twelve awards in 2012-2013. Each grant will provide a stipend of $5,000 for a minimum of eight weeks of research at participating institutions. Applications are welcome from anyone with a serious need to use the collections and facilities of the organizations. The Consortium's grants are designed to encourage projects that draw on the resources of several agencies. Each award will be for research at a minimum of three different institutions. Fellows must work at each of these organizations for at least two weeks. Grants in this cycle are for the year June 1, 2012 - May 31, 2013. More information is available at www.nerfc.org.
