The Harry Ransom Center at The University of Texas at Austin invites applications for its 2019­-2020 research fellowships. 
Ten dissertation fellowships and up to 50 postdoctoral fellowships will be awarded for projects that require substantial on-site use of its collections. The fellowships support research in all areas of the humanities, including film. 
The Center’s film collections include the papers of producers David O. Selznick and Lewis Allen, directors Nicholas Ray and David Mamet, actors Gloria Swanson, Robert De Niro, Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson, screenwriters Ernest Lehman, Paul Schrader, Warren Skaaren, Jay Presson Allen, Tom Stoppard, David Hare, and others, acting teacher Stella Adler, special effects pioneer Norman Dawn and Thomas Smith, the Interstate Theatre Circuit, the series Mad Men among many others. For more information about the Center’s film collections, visit <>.
The deadline for applications, which must be submitted through the Center’s website, is November 15, 2018, 5 p.m. CST. Applicants, with the exception of those applying for dissertation fellowships, must have a Ph.D. or be independent scholars with a substantial record of professional achievement.
The fellowships range from one to three months, with stipends of $3,500 per month. Travel stipends and dissertation fellowships provide stipends of $2,000. International fellows receive an additional $500 stipend to offset visa and travel costs. Applicants will be notified of decisions on March 31, 2019.
Fellowship residencies may be scheduled between June 1, 2019, and August 31, 2020. During the fellowship, scholars will work on-site at the Ransom Center in Austin, Texas.
Fellows will become part of a distinguished group of alumni. Since the fellowship program's inauguration in 1990, the Ransom Center has supported more than 1,200 research projects.
