The UCLA Library’s James and Sylvia Thayer Short-Term Research Fellowships support the use of special collections materials by visiting scholars and UCLA graduate students. Collections that are administered by the UCLA Library Special Collections and available for Thayer fellowship-supported research include materials in the humanities and social sciences; medicine; life and physical sciences; visual and performing arts; and UCLA history.
Research residencies may last up to three months between February 1 and December 14, 2012. Recipients receive stipends ranging from $500 to $2500. Those receiving fellowships are expected to provide a brief report on the results of their research that can be mounted on the UCLA Library Web site. Fellows may have the opportunity to speak about their research at an informal brown-bag session with local scholars during their visit.
