HAIL FELLOW WELL MET…

The next deadline for applications for the Field Bibliography Fellowships is April 1, 2013.

Fellowships cover a three-year period, beginning July 1, 2013 and ending June 30, 2016. The MLA seeks scholars of any level of seniority interested in training as field bibliography fellows and able to deliver at least 100 citations each year. This opportunity is open to potential as well as existing field bibliographers. The MLA will provide materials and training meetings at the annual convention. Fellows attending training sessions will have their conference registration fees waived. On completion of the fellowship, they will receive a stipend of $500 and a certificate at the Award Ceremony at the MLA Convention. It is hoped that recipients of these fellowships will continue submitting citations throughout their careers.

More information regarding the application process may be found by following the link below:
