Long-term Research Fellowships at the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture

18 months of stipend support (2-3 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The Schomburg Scholars-in-Residence Program (SIR) is one of The New York Public Library’s (NYPL) landmark research Fellowship programs. This project will bring three Fellows annually to the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture during the 2019-2022 academic years. During 6-month residential fellowships, these SIR Fellows will have the opportunity to use the Schomburg’s renowned collections in their research into the history and cultures of the peoples of Africa and the African Diaspora, fostering the creation of new humanities publications in the fields of African, African American, and African Diaspora studies. NYPL is requesting National Endowment for the Humanities support from the FPIRI program to support 18 months’ worth of Fellowship stipends each year, totaling 54 months of support over the grant period, along with selection expenses for the 2019-2020, 2020-2021, and 2021-2022 cohorts.
