At the library....
We are delighted to welcome our Visiting Fellows to the library. First to arrive are the remainder of our very patient “COVID Cohort” of researchers who have been waiting for three years to take up their 2020-2021 Fellowships at the Lewis Walpole Library. In addition, the new crop of 2023-24 Fellows begin to arrive with the start of the new Fellowship year on June 1.
The library offers a variety of fellowships and travel grants to support research focused in the library’s rich collections of eighteenth-century materials.
Residential Visiting Fellowships bring scholars from across the globe to Farmington for two or four weeks to undertake research in library collections on a wide variety of topics related to Britain in the eighteenth-century world.
Summer Fellowships for Yale Graduate Students afford students whose topic of research is supported by the library’s collections the opportunity to spend two, four, or eight weeks during June through August in residence at the library. Opportunities for 2023 are still available, and Yale graduate students are invited to apply.
