The Library initiated a Fellowship program in 1962 and it has grown substantially since. Presently the John Carter Brown Library Fellowship program gives scholars from this country and abroad an opportunity to pursue their work in proximity to a distinguished collection of primary sources. Approximately thirty to forty fellowships are awarded each year for periods of time ranging from two to ten months. Fellowships are residential and are available for any qualified researcher. The main criteria for appointment are the merit of the candidate’s proposal, the qualifications of the candidate, and the relevance of the project to the holdings of the Library.
