Applications for 2014-2015 Fenwick Fellow Program Now Being Accepted

The Fenwick Fellowship is awarded annually to a Mason faculty member to pursue a research project that uses and enhances the University Libraries’ resources while advancing knowledge in his or her field.

The Fellowship provides

  • one award of $5,000 to be used for the acquisition of library research materials that may be needed for the Fellow’s research project, as well as associated research costs (e.g., research assistant support, survey costs, defrayal of conference costs when specifically required for the Fellow’s research project, and other related incidental costs).
  • use of an office in Fenwick Library for the term of the Fellowship (August 25, 2014 – August 7, 2015).

The Fenwick Fellowship application deadline is Friday, April 25, 2014. The 2014-2015 Fenwick Fellow will be announced at the start of the Fall academic term. University Libraries sponsor a public lecture by the Fenwick Fellow in the Spring term following the completed fellowship.
