The William L. Clements Library at the University of Michigan is now accepting applications for 2022-2023 visiting research fellowships. The Clements’ holdings—books, manuscripts, pamphlets, maps, prints and views, newspapers, photographs, ephemera—are among the best in the world on almost any aspect of the American experience from 1492 through 1900, and support a diverse array of research projects.

Particular strengths include the history of Colonial and Revolutionary America, gender and ethnicity, religion, Native American history, slavery and antislavery, Atlantic history, the Caribbean, cartography, the Civil War, reform movements, travel and exploration, and African American history, among others.

The Clements offers long term (three months), short term (one month), and week-long fellowships, as well as a digital fellowship with no residency requirement. Applications are due by January 15, 2022 for research to be undertaken between April 1, 2022 through March 30, 2023.
