New IU Summer Research Fellowship Now Available through the Institute for Advanced Study

The Indiana University Institute for Advanced Study (IAS) has announced its Summer Research Fellowship, a new program offered in partnership with repositories on the Bloomington campus.  The Black Film Center/Archive is pleased to be among the partner repositories for this program.

Beginning in Summer 2015, IAS will fund a short-term Summer Research Fellowship for a visiting scholar to conduct in-depth research in the collections of one or more of IAS’s partner repositories. Applications from researchers at Minority Serving Institutions, community colleges and in source communities are welcome. Preference will be given to applicants who are collaborating with Indiana University Bloomington faculty members.

This initiative is intended to support research in the rich collections of the IU Bloomington campus and to build partnerships between scholars at and beyond IUB. The fellowship provides funding for travel costs, accommodation, per diem, and a two-week stipend. Summer 2015 partner repositories include the Archives of Traditional Music, the Black Film Center/Archive, the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology, the IU Libraries, and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures. Applications are due by June 1, 2015. For application materials and additional information, please visit the IAS website at http://ias.indiana.edu/fellows/summer-research-fellowship/ .

The Institute for Advanced Study is a research center of the Indiana University Office of the Vice Provost for Research.
