Short-term Collections-based Fellowships
The ISM also supports short-term fellowships for research on the aural, material, visual, ritual, and textual cultures of religions. At present, these fellowships are restricted to work on Yale’s non-circulating collections, particularly at the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library, the Collection of Musical Instruments, the Yale Center for British Art, the Yale Peabody Museum of Natural History, and the Yale University Art Gallery. They are residential for one to three months in that researchers must free themselves of most other work during the period of the fellowship and are expected to reside in the vicinity of Yale. Yale faculty, staff, and students are not eligible for these fellowships.
