Rare Book School at the University of Virginia is now accepting
applications for new NEH-GBHI Scholarships!  Funded by a National Endowment
for the Humanities matching grant, these scholarships form part of the
School’s Global Book Histories Initiative (GBHI), an effort to increase
course offerings relating to non-western book history and bibliography over
the next several years. Scholarships will provide full Rare Book School
course tuition as well as a travel stipend of $2,000. Up to twenty-four
(24) awards will be made this year.

Eligible applicants from any allied field will come from underrepresented
racial or ethnic groups, or will work with organizations primarily serving
such groups.  Successful applicants will demonstrate how they intend to
share what they learn from RBS course content with colleagues in their own

Scholarship recipients will have two years to use their awards, contingent
upon acceptance into any particular RBS course.

Rare Book School is also currently accepting applications for various
additional scholarships and fellowships open to new and returning RBS

Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American
Library Association. See
