Graduate Research Fellowships
Application due February 28, 20202020 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.
Institute for Advanced Study: Summer Repository Research Fellowship
Applications due March 1, 2020Visit the IAS website for more application details!
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!
Indiana University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology Native American Summer Fellowship
Applications due March 20, 2020.Visit the IUMAA website for guidelines!
The Indiana University Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology (IUMAA) in Bloomington, Indiana, invites Native American applications for summer fellowships in museum studies, curation, exhibition, and museum management. The IUMAA comprises the collections and professional staff of the Glenn A. Black Laboratory of Archaeology and the Mathers Museum of World Cultures, which merged to offer an expansive and integrated museum of culture. We seek fellows to work alongside professional museum staff to handle regional archaeological and broader ethnographic collections for documentation, digitization, and future exhibitions. We will accept two inaugural fellows for the summer of 2020 to participate in this new program. This fellowship is open to all Native peoples from anywhere in North America, although preference will be given to college students. Native status documentation should be provided by either (a) tribal enrollment certification or (b) a statement outlining Native ancestry and community involvement.
The IUMAA archaeological and ethnographic collections are among the largest in the midcontinent and feature a wide array of objects, artifacts, maps, and associated records. The museum features over 2 million artifacts and data from the Angel Mounds Site in Evansville, Indiana, and over 30,000 ethnographic pieces from across the world. We are preparing for renovations that require us to move the collections off-site for more than a year, during which we will plan exhibitions to open when renovations are complete in 2022.
The duration of the award is ten (10) weeks, will start in the summer of 2020, and carries a stipend of $10,000. The first payment will occur after the awardee arrives at the IUMAA to begin their fellowship, although a portion can be used for travel arrangements prior to arrival in Bloomington. The purpose of the stipend is to defray the costs of travel, housing and expenses. Awards are taxable income.
