The Hill Museum & Manuscript Library (HMML) is pleased to announce its spring Fellowships. Scholars and graduate students interested in doing research at HMML are encouraged to apply. HMML, located at Saint John’s University in Collegeville, Minnesota, has created the world’s largest archive of manuscript photographs in both microfilm and digital format. HMML staff travel the world to identify important manuscript libraries that need photographic preservation. HMML’s archives now contain more than 140,000 complete manuscripts, totaling more than 50,000,000 manuscript pages. For general questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. For questions regarding Mediterranean Studies, please contact Dr. Daniel K. Gullo at email@example.com. More information about the fellowships can be found here. http://www.hmml.org/scholar-opportunities.html
Heckman Stipends, made possible by the A.A. Heckman Endowed Fund, are awarded semi-annually. Up to 10 stipends in amounts up to $2,000 are available each year. Funds may be applied toward travel to and from Collegeville, housing and meals at Saint John’s University, and costs related to duplication of HMML’s microfilm or digital resources. The Stipend may be supplemented by other sources of funding but may not be held simultaneously with another HMML Stipend or Fellowship. Holders of the Stipend must wait at least two years before applying again. The program is specifically intended to help scholars who have not yet established themselves professionally and whose research cannot progress satisfactorily without consulting materials to be found in the collections of the Hill Museum & Manuscript Library.
