BMRC is pleased to host 2019 Summer Short-term Fellowships! 

Through an international competition, the BMRC offers 1-month residential fellowships awarding a $4,000 stipend for the summer (between June and August) in the city of Chicago for its Summer Short-term Fellowship Program. This renowned Fellowship Program has engaged scholars, independent researchers, artists, and public historians from the United States, Canada and Europe to better formulate new historical narratives of Chicago’s past through use of BMRC Member Archives. The new, original research and art developed through this program is significant as it illuminates the national and international importance of Chicago’s African American community.


Deadline for submission of your application is Sunday, February 17, 2019, 12:00am CST.
