The Danky Fellowship provides $1000 in funds for one individual planning a trip to carry out research using the collections of the Wisconsin Historical Society (please see details of the collections at http://www.wisconsinhistory.org). Grant money may be used for travel to the WHS, costs of copying pertinent archival resources, and living expenses while pursuing research here. If in residence during the semester, the recipient will be expected to give a presentation as part of the colloquium series of the Center for the History of Print and Digital Culture (http://www.slis.wisc.edu/chpchome.htm).
Preference will be given to:
-proposals undertaking research in print culture history
-research likely to lead to publication
-researchers early in their career
-researchers from outside Madison
Prior to applying it is strongly suggested that applicants contact the Wisconsin Historical Society Reference Archivist (phone: 608-264-6460; email: firstname.lastname@example.org) to discuss the relevancy of WHS collections to their projects. Wisconsin Historical Society and CHPDC staff may be able to identify potential collections of which you may not otherwise be aware.
There is no application form. Applicants must submit the following:
1) A cover sheet with name, telephone, permanent address and e-mail, current employer/affiliation, title of project, and proposed dates of residency.
2) A letter of two single-spaced pages maximum describing the project and its relation to specifically cited collections at the society and to previous work on the same theme, and describing the projected outcome of the work, including publication plans. If residents of the Madison area are applying, they must explain their financial need for the stipend.
3) Curriculum vitae.
4) Two confidential letters of reference. Graduate students must include their thesis adviser.
Applications are due by May 1st. The recipient will be notified by May 31st.
