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 communities.
Scholarship recipients will have two years to use their awards, contingent upon acceptance into any particular RBS course.
APPLICATION DEADLINE: November 1, 2017 at 5PM EDT
More information about the program, including scholarship applications, may be found here:
Rare Book School is also currently accepting applications for various additional scholarships and fellowships open to new and returning RBS students. Among other fellowships of immediate relevance are the RBS-RBMS Diversity Fellowships, which provides RBS tuition as well as attendance at the annual conference of the Rare Books and Manuscripts Section of the Association of College and Research Libraries, a division of the American Library Association.

Applications will be accepted until November 1.
