2020 GBL Fellowship Guidelines

The Glenn Black Laboratory of Archaeology (GBL) offers research fellowships for graduate students of Indiana University Bloomington. These fellowships aid research for dissertation, thesis, or related projects that make use of the Glenn Black Laboratory collections and resources, and/or contribute to archaeology or ethnohistory of the Midwest. The GBL has millions of artifacts that derive from a range of sites and time periods. GBL also has the Erminie Wheeler-Voegelin Archives and Great Lakes and Ohio Valley Ethnohistory Collection, which provide unmatched resources for students interested in the Native American past. Students must be working with an IU faculty member who can provide mentoring and oversight for their research. GBL fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. Awards for work using GBL collections, fieldwork in the Indiana region, or work related to sites where GBL has worked receive high priority. Review and selection is made by the advisory committee for the GBL and senior lab staff.

In partnership with IU Bloomington repositories and with support from the Office of the Vice Provost for Research, the Institute offers a short-term Summer Repository Research Fellowship to support immersive collections research. This initiative is intended to support research in the rich collections of the IU Bloomington campus and to build partnerships between scholars at and beyond IUB.

Started in summer 2015, this program funds a short-term Summer Repository Research Fellowship for a visiting faculty member or community scholar researcher to conduct in-depth research in the collections of one or more of our partner repositories. The fellowship provides an allowance for travel, lodging, and per diem as well as a two-week stipend for the visiting researcher and for the IUB faculty researcher. Fellows are expected to give an informal public presentation of their research at some point during their time in Bloomington.

The Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology is a partnered repository!
