The American Geographical Society Library, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Libraries, welcomes applications for two short-term 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 $3,300 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 outlet.
Helen and John S. Best Research Fellowships. Stipends of $400 per week, for periods up to 4 weeks, will be awarded to help support residencies for the purpose of conducting research that makes direct use of the Library. The AGS Library, the former research library and map collection of the American Geographical Society of New York, has strengths in geography, cartography, and related historical topics. The AGSL also houses the archives of both the Association of American Geographers and the American Geographical Society.
