More than 50 fellowships will be awarded for projects that require substantial on-site use of the Ransom Center's collections, supporting research in all areas of the humanities including literature, photography, film, art, the performing arts, music, and cultural history.
The fellowships range from one to three months, with stipends of $3,000 per month. Also available are $1,200 or $1,700 travel stipends and dissertation fellowships with a $1,500 stipend.
