Helmerich Center for American Research
The Helmerich Center for American Research (HCAR) will offer five short-term fellowships for the 2020-21 academic year. Fellowships are available for pre- and post-doctoral research or independent research with a stipend of $2,500 for United States residents and $3,000 for international residents from May 2020-May 2021. The length of research visits are between two weeks and one month. Individuals who live within 70 miles of HCAR and who are not employed by The University of Tulsa are eligible to apply for one-month fellowships, with a stipend of $1,000.
The Helmerich Center houses the Gilcrease Library and Archive containing more than 100,000 rare books, documents, maps and unpublished works. The vast collection, dating back to Spanish arrival in the Americas, tells the stories of the New England colonies, Westward expansion and the experiences of America’s native peoples. Fellows are also encouraged to research materials relevant to their project at McFarlin Library Special Collections (on The University of Tulsa campus), which has extensive holdings pertaining to the history and literature of the Americas.
Fellows are expected to be active researchers in regular residence at HCAR, and they are encouraged to participate in the intellectual life of HCAR and The University of Tulsa. A brief report will be due within 30 days of completion of the fellowship, and a copy of any publications resulting from the research should also be sent to HCAR.
To apply, submit the following:
• Narrative description in English of the proposed project, including an explanation of its significance, progress on the project and specific materials to be consulted at HCAR (and, if applicable, McFarlin Special Collections) and plan for completion of the work while in residence. This document should not exceed 1,500 words.
• Curriculum vitae, not to exceed three pages
• Two letters of reference
Deadline: March 31, 2020
