The Nicky B. Carpenter Fellowship in Manuscript Studies supports residencies at HMML for research by senior scholars using the digital or microfilm manuscript collections at HMML.
Two to three fellowships of $5,000 will be awarded each year to support a residency of at least two weeks. 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. Fellowships may be supplemented by other sources of funding but may not be held simultaneously with another HMML award. Holders of the Fellowship must wait at least two years before applying again.
Applications must be submitted by March 15 for residencies July and December of the same year.
The program welcomes international applicants, but does not sponsor J visas.
These Fellowships in Manuscript Studies were established in 2012 by Nicky B. Carpenter of Wayzata, Minnesota, a Lifetime Member and former chair of the HMML Board of Overseers.
