The Harry Ransom Center invites applications for its 2018­-2019 research fellowships.

The Ransom Center will award 10 dissertation fellowships and up to 50 postdoctoral fellowships for projects that require substantial on-site use of its collections. The collections support research in all areas of the humanities, including literature, photography, film, art, the performing arts, music, and cultural history.

The deadline for applications, which must be submitted through the Center’s website, is November 15, 2017, 5 p.m. CST. All applicants, with the exception of those applying for dissertation fellowships, must have a Ph.D. or be independent scholars with a substantial record of achievement.

The fellowships range from one to three months, with stipends of $3,500 per month (domestic) or $4,000 per month (international). Travel stipends and dissertation fellowships provide stipends of $2,000 (domestic) or $2,500 (international). Fellowship residencies may be scheduled between June 1, 2018, and August 31, 2019. During the fellowship, scholars will work on-site at the Ransom Center in Austin, Texas.

Fellows will become part of a distinguished group of alumni. Since the fellowship program’s inauguration in 1990, the Ransom Center has supported the research of more than 1,000 scholars from around the world.
