American Geographical Society Library Fellowships For 2014

*American Geographical Society Library Fellowships for 2014*

The American Geographical Society Library, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries, welcomes applications for two short-term research fellowship programs:

*McColl Research Program Fellowships*
This is a short-term fellowship program available to individuals who wish to communicate their geographical research results to a broad, educated general audience. Awards of $3300 for four-week fellowships will be provided to support residencies for the purpose of conducting research that makes direct use of the Library, and results in publication in a mutually agreed upon outlet.

*Helen and John S. Best Research Fellowships*
This is a short-term fellowship intended to support individuals whose research would benefit from extensive use of the AGS Library. Stipends of $400 per week, for periods up to 4 weeks, will be awarded.

The American Geographical Society Library is one of North America’s foremost geography and map collections with strengths in geography, cartography and related historical topics. An extensive collection of books, periodicals, photos, maps, pamphlets, atlases, globes, electronic data, and the archives of the Association of American Geographers and the American Geographical Society are maintained at the AGS Library. In addition, researchers benefit from access to the UWM Libraries print and online collections during their residency. Please note that not all AGS Library materials are listed in the online catalog, but finding aids and professional staff are available to assist in determining if resources in the AGSL are suitable for a given research project.

Applications must be received by October 21, 2013. All fellowships are tenable in 2014.
