Fellowships to support scholars, based outside the New York metropolitan
area, engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent research in
the arts and humanities. This fellowship is intended to support projects
that would significantly benefit from research conducted on-site at one of
our three research centers, drawing from collections unique to The New York
Fellowship stipends are $1,000 per week for a minimum of two and a maximum
of four concurrent weeks.

Now the unofficial part.
In crafting your proposal, make sure the focus of your research is on
Special Collections materials, meaning few or no other institution have
such materials--in other words, primarily archival collections (though not
excluding unique materials such as manuscripts, unpublished photographs and
iconography or archival recordings). Your proposal will reveal that you are
thoroughly familiar with the relevant collections' finding aids and how
they relate to your topic.
Good luck to all!
