Margaret Storrs Grierson, Caroline D. Bain, and Friends of the Smith College Libraries Scholars-in-Residence Fellowships -- The Sophia Smith Collection and the Smith College Archives offer the Margaret Storrs Grierson, the Caroline D. Bain, and Friends of the Smith College Libraries Scholars-in-Residence Fellowships awarded in an annual competition. Scholars will hold awards of $2,500, intended to support research visits of four to six weeks. Faculty members, independent researchers, and graduate students who live at least 50 miles from Northampton, MA, and whose research interests and objectives would be significantly advanced by extended work in the holdings of either the Sophia Smith Collection or the Smith College Archives may apply. Scholars will be expected to present an informal work-in-progress colloquium to the Smith College community during their residency and, at some later time, to send the Sophia Smith Collection and college archives a copy of the final results of their research, whether in published or unpublished form. We encourage potential applicants to contact our reference archivists to inquire about the relevance of our collections for their projects before submitting their proposals. Reference queries can be made online at www.smith.edu/libraries/libs/ssc/emailform.html or by calling 413-585-2970.
Application deadline February 15, 2013.

Requests from researchers who would like to survey our holdings as they formulate their research agendas will also be considered. Applications are evaluated once per year. The upcoming application deadline is February 15, 2012.
