Subject Specific Fellowships and Awards

The Stuart A. Rose Manuscript, Archives, and Rare Book Library will not offer fellowships for 2021 due to ongoing travel restrictions at Emory University in order to reduce the spread of Covid-19.

We continue to offer remote services to all researchers through our regular online request process to provide access to our collections. Please continue to stay tuned to this page for information in 2022.

The Rose Library offers 9 different subject-specific short-term fellowships from donors to support scholarly use of the Library's research collections.

The Rose Library fellowships have a value of $250-$1,250. The length of the fellowship will depend on the applicant's research proposal. 

Fellowship applications are required to submit a research plan and are evaluated on the following criteria:

  1. the qualifications of the candidate;
  2. a clearly articulated research topic; and 
  3. a demonstrated understanding of the research materials available in the Rose Library to support their work.

Equal weight is given to each of these three aspects in determining the final priority rating.


  • In addition to meeting the minimum residency requirements, all award recipients will be required to submit a report of their experiences and work within the archive for the Rose Library Following the Fellows blog
  • All fellows are paid their award money 4-6 weeks AFTER completion of their visit. 
  • The application deadline is February 28, 2020.
