Carson Fellows are expected to work in residence on a major research project that pertains to one or more of our research themes. They should also engage with other fellows and contribute to the programs at the center.
The program is a writing fellowship program; we do not sponsor field trips or archival research.
We seek new applicants for our Carson Fellowships once a year; the call for applications is normally posted in July / August and the deadline usually falls on January 31.
The length of fellowships are flexible and will usually be granted for periods of 6, 9 or 12 months, but they can also be granted for 3 months or be broken up into individual 3 month periods. Fellowships are also staggered, enabling further flexibility and maintaining a rich community of scholars throughout the year.
