Lewis Walpole Library (Yale University): Visiting Fellowships & Travel Grants 2018

The Lewis Walpole Library offers short-term residential Visiting Fellowships and Travel Grants to support research in the Library’s rich collections of eighteenth-century materials (mainly British), including important holdings of prints, drawings, manuscripts, rare books, and paintings.

Recipients are expected to be in residence at the Library, to be free of other significant professional obligations during their stay, and to focus their research substantially on the Lewis Walpole Library’s collections. Fellows also have access to additional resources at Yale, including those in the Sterling Memorial Library, the Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library, and the Yale Center for British Art.

Funding

Visiting Fellowships (four- and eight-week) include:

  • the round-trip cost of travel between the Lewis Walpole Library and the recipient’s home institution or residence.
  • accommodation for four or eight weeks in an eighteenth-century house on the Library’s campus.
  • a per diem living allowance to cover living expenses for 4-week Fellows, or a stipend for 8-week Fellows.

Travel Grants cover:

  • transportation costs between the Lewis Walpole Library and the recipient’s home institution or residence.
  • on-site accommodation for two weeks in an eighteenth-century house on the library’s campus.
