Rare Book School (Charlottesville, VA 22903-2444)
Danielle Culpepper (Project Director: May 2016 to present)
Rare Book School's Global Book Histories Initiative

Thirty-six fellowships to professionals of color or those working with collections associated with people of color for newly developed courses that deal with topics beyond the Western canon.

Rare Book School (RBS) is applying for 1:1 matching funds from the NEH in the amount of $100,000, to raise a total of $200,000 in support of scholarships for its ongoing Global Book Histories Initiative (GBHI). Building on current RBS programs to provide learning opportunities for members of underrepresented communities and to expand its educational offerings in non-western and immigrant book history and bibliography, this initiative directly benefits communities of color by supporting librarians and other professionals of color as well as those working with the cultural heritage collections of underrepresented communities. These funds would support 36 full fellowships, with travel and housing, as well as expenses for six lectures from esteemed speakers on topics relating to global book history.
