MLA Field Bibliography Fellowships
The MLA International Bibliography invites applications for field bibliography fellowships.
Field bibliographers examine scholarly materials and send citations and indexing information to the MLA office for inclusion in the bibliography. Fellowships are for a three-year period, beginning 1 July 2015, and ending 30 June 2018; five to ten fellowships will be awarded annually. The MLA seeks scholars of any level of seniority interested in training as field bibliography fellows and able to deliver 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 awards ceremony at the MLA convention. It is hoped that recipients of these fellowships will continue submitting citations throughout their careers.
The deadline for application is April 1, 2015.
The basic criteria for application are:
1. MLA membership
2. MA or Ph.D. in a relevant field
3. Access to scholarly material for indexing
To apply, send a letter of request including qualifications and reasons for application to the fellowship, and a current resume or c.v. Materials or questions may be addressed to:
