The $1,500 Edith Wharton Collection Research Award

Post date: Monday, March 19, 2012
Deadline: 31 March 2012

Edith Wharton Collection Research Award

Each year the Edith Wharton Society offers an Edith Wharton Collection Research Award of $1500 to enable a scholar to conduct research on the Edith Wharton Collection of materials at the Beinecke Library at Yale University.

Prospective fellows for the 2012-2013 award are asked to submit a research proposal (maximum length 5 single-spaced pages) and a CV by the deadline to

Gary Totten, Gary.Totten@ndsu.edu
English, Dept. #2320
P.O. Box 6050
North Dakota State University
Fargo, ND 58108-6050

The research proposal should detail the overall research project, its particular contribution to Wharton scholarship, the preparation the candidate brings to the project, and the specific relevance that materials at the Beinecke collection have for its completion. The funds need to be used for transportation, lodging, and other expenses related to a stay at the library.

Notification of the award will take place by April 15th and the award can be used from May 1, 2012 until May 1, 2013. A final report will be due June 1, 2013. The Winner will be asked at that point to submit a short report essay to the Edith Wharton Review, which will briefly inform the readers of the EWR of the research done but will not be in the way of the winner publishing a scholarly article elsewhere as well.
