The Lilly Library of Indiana University invites applications for fellowships in support of research in the library’s Bernardo Mendel collections.

Established through a bequest by the estate of Johanna Lenz Mendel in 1998, the Mendel Fellowships are intended to support research by scholars from around the world in areas of particular interest to the Mendels, including: the history of the Spanish Colonial Empire; Latin American independence movements; European expansion in the Americas; voyages, travels and exploration; geography, navigation and cartography; German literature and history; and music, including sheet music. The amount of the stipend is based on the length of stay, which may range from one week to a full academic year. The fellowship is intended to cover travel to the Lilly Library and living expenses while in residence.

There is no special application form: Candidates, ranging from doctoral research students to senior scholars, should submit a curriculum vitae, a 2-3 page proposal for their projects, including the specific holdings they intend to consult, two letters of recommendation, and a indication of length of stay, which may include the summer months.
