MLA Bibliography Fellowships

MLA Bibliography Fellowships

Apply now for the 2019 Fellowships

Fellowships are for a three-year period, beginning 1 July 2019 and ending 30 June 2022. The MLA seeks scholars of any level of seniority interested in training as field bibliography fellows and able to deliver at least one hundred 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 during the awards ceremony at the MLA convention. It is hoped that recipients of these fellowships will continue submitting citations throughout their careers.

Applications for the 2019 field bibliography fellowships are due by 1 April 2019.

The basic criteria for application are

  1. MLA membership
  2. Master’s degree or PhD in a relevant field
  3. Access to scholarly material for indexing

Please submit a letter of request, including qualifications and reasons for applying for the fellowship, and a current résumé or CV. Materials may be sent to Helen Slavin, MLA International Bibliography, 85 Broad Street, suite 500, New York, NY 10004-2434 (hslavin@mla.org).
