Deadline: $1,500 Youth Services Fellowship Applications


Kent State University’s School of Library and Information Science has begun accepting applications for two $1,500 research fellowships.

The Jacqueline M. Albers Guest Scholar in Children’s Literature Fellowship was endowed by SLIS alumna Jacqueline M. Albers to support a guest scholar who will study children’s literature using the collections in the Reinberger Children’s Library Center.

The Kenneth and Sylvia Marantz Fellowship for Picturebook Research, supported by Dr. Kenneth and Sylvia Marantz, encourages scholarly research on the study of picturebooks using the resources of the Marantz Picturebook Collection for the Study of Picturebook Art.

Each fellowship provides a stipend of up to $1,500 for outstanding scholars to spend approximately one week on site, researching children's literature, picturebooks, posters or ephemera related to picturebooks in the Reinberger Children's Library Center and Marantz Picturebook Collection at the Kent State University School of Library and Information Science in Kent, Ohio, U.S.A. Funds will be awarded after completion of the on-site research.
