Thanks to generous continued funding from the Elios Charitable Foundation and additional funding from the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Foundation, the University Library - California State University, Sacramento is pleased to announce the continuation of the Library Research Fellowship Program to support the use of the Tsakopoulos Hellenic Collection by fellows for scholarly research in Hellenic studies while in residence in Sacramento. The Program provides a limited number of fellowships ranging from $1,000 to $4,000 in the form of reimbursement to help offset transportation and living expenses incurred during the tenure of the awards and is open to external researchers anywhere in the world at the doctoral through senior scholar levels (including independent scholars) working in fields encompassed by the Collection's strengths who reside outside a 75-mile radius of Sacramento. Only researchers on unpaid leave or with partial funding from their home institution and/or other sources are eligible for fellowship funding under this Program. Researchers on fully-paid leave from their home institution or with full outside research fellowships are not eligible to receive fellowship funding.
The term of fellowships can vary between two weeks and three months, depending on the nature of the research, and for the current cycle will be tenable from July 1, 2017–June 30, 2018. Fellows are responsible for making their own travel and accommodation arrangements. On-campus housing and dining options are available during summer months at a considerable savings over off-campus alternatives through the Sacramento State Housing and Residential Life Conference Housing Services.
