New College has a one-month annual exchange research Fellowship with The Huntington Library in San Marino, CA, two blocks from Caltech in Pasadena. The month must be taken between 1 July and 30 June in any year.
The Fellowship applications are judged with a leaning towards the use of the Library's holdings. The collection's strengths are in English history, American history, English literature, Drama, and History of Art. It also has a separate Librarian in the History of Science and has the Dibner Science Library recently transferred from MIT. The Library also has a secondary collection, which has strengths in areas that support the main holdings, and which tend to reflect the interests of the regular scholars.
The College's intranet contains details on the terms and application procedure.
The deadline for applications for 2024-25 is 12 noon on Wednesday 15th November 2023.
Any questions should be addressed to Michael Burden.
