Posted on: Tuesday, November 19, 2019 - 11:11am

The Center for Pacific Northwest Studies (CPNWS) is currently accepting applications for the James W. Scott Regional Research Fellowships which promote awareness and innovative use of archival collections at Western Washington University, and seek to forward scholarly understandings of the Pacific Northwest. Fellowship funds are awarded in honor of the late Dr. James W. Scott, a noted scholar of the Pacific Northwest region and a founder and first Director of CPNWS.

Up to $1000 in funding is offered to support significant research using archival holdings at CPNWS. Applications are accepted from individuals in doctoral programs as well as individuals who have finished the Ph.D. Fellows are expected to spend approximately one week examining CPNWS holdings and will be asked to give a presentation about some aspect of their research during the course of their scheduled visit.

Applications will be reviewed after January 31, 2020. Applications must be submitted by email to Ruth.Steele@wwu.edu (please include "Scott Fellowship Application" in the subject line), and include:

  • Cover letter
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Research plan outlining on-site use of CPNWS holdings and proposed presentation topic
