James and Sylvia Thayer Short-term Research Fellowships support the use of special collections materials by visiting scholars and UCLA graduate students. Collections that are administered by UCLA Library Special Collections (http://www.library.ucla.edu/libraries/special-collections) and available for fellowship-supported research include materials in the humanities and social sciences, medicine, life and physical sciences, visual and performing arts, and UCLA history.
Research residencies may last up to three months between January 7 and December 13, 2013. Recipients receive stipends ranging from $500 to $2,500. (Awards vary yearly. Grants in 2011 averaged $1,167; in 2012, $998.)
United States citizens and permanent residents with legal right to work in the U.S. who are engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, or independent research are invited to apply.
