Announcement

The Bibliographical Society of America
2007 Fellowship Program Announcement
<http://www.bibsocamer.org/fellows.htm>

The Bibliographical Society of America (BSA) invites applications for 
its annual short-term fellowship program, which supports bibliographical 
inquiry as well as research in the history of the book trades and in 
publishing history. Eligible topics may concentrate on books and 
documents in any field, but should focus on the book or manuscript (the 
physical object) as historical evidence. Such topics may include 
establishing a text or studying the history of book production, 
publication, distribution, collecting, or reading. Enumerative listings 
do not fall within the scope of this program.

Among the BSA Fellowships offered each year are a number of named awards 
funded through generous contributions from members of the 
bibliographical community:

     * The Folter Fellowship in the History of Bibliography
       ($2,000);
     * The Katharine Pantzer Fellowship in the British Book
       Trades ($2,000);
     * The McCorison Fellowship for the History and Bibliography
       of Printing in Canada and the United States: the Gift of
       Donald Oresman ($2,000);
     * The Reese Fellowship for American Bibliography and the
       History of the Book in the Americas ($2,000).

Applicants need not apply for a specific named fellowship to be 
eligible, although if their research falls within the scope of a 
particular award they may wish to shape their project description 
accordingly.

BSA Fellowships may be held for one or two months. The program is open 
to applicants of any nationality, with or without current academic 
affiliation.  Fellows will be paid a stipend of up to $2,000 per month 
(for up to two months) in support of travel, living, and research expenses.

Applications for this program, including three letters of reference, 
must be received on or before 1 December 2006. No applications will be 
accepted after that date. Completed application packages may be 
submitted via e-mail attachment using the word-processing form 
(preferred) <http://www.bibsocamer.org/Fellowships/Email_app.doc>, or 
via post using the PDF print-out form 
<http://www.bibsocamer.org/Fellowships/Postal_app.pdf>.  Specific 
application instructions may be found on the forms themselves. 
Prospective applicants unable to download submission forms may contact 
the executive secretary for application material as well as additional 
information about the program: BSA Executive Secretary, P.O. Box 1537, 
Lenox Hill Station, New York, NY 10021, e-mail bsa(at)bibsocamer.org. 
Any questions about the submission procedure may be directed to David 
Gants, Chair of the Fellowship Committee, dgants(at)unb.ca.
