Council on Library and Information Resources

The Council on Library and Information Resources (CLIR) offers fellowships funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for dissertation research in the humanities in original sources. The program offers about ten competitively awarded fellowships per year, each providing a monthly stipend for 8-12 months. Fellows receive an additional grant after participating in a symposium on research in original sources and submitting an acceptable report to CLIR on the research experience.
