The Bibliographical Society of America
2006 Fellowship Program Announcement
The BSA invites applications for its annual short-term fellowship program, which
supports bibliographical inquiry as well as research in the history of the book trades
and in publishing history. Eligible topics may concentrate on books and documents in
any field, but should focus on the book or manuscript (the physical object) as
historical evidence. Such topics may include establishing a text or studying the
history of book production, publication, distribution, collecting, or reading.
Enumerative listings do not fall within the scope of this program.
Fellows receive a stipend of up to $2,000 per month (for up to two months) to support
travel, living, and research expenses. The program is open to applicants of any
nationality or affiliation.
Applications, including references, are due by midnight 1 December 2005. Application
forms (in static HTML and Word formats) are available for download at
www.bibsocamer.org, or they may be requested from the BSA Executive Secretary, P.O. Box
1537, Lenox Hill Station, New York, NY 10021, e-mail bsa(at)bibsocamer.org.
Applications will be accepted through the post or by e-mail attachment, and any
questions about the submission procedure can be directed to David Gants, Chair of the
Fellowship Committee, dgants(at)unb.ca.
