Eligibility: The Moore Student Fellowship opportunity is available to current Swarthmore College students only. (Students scheduled to graduate in 2020 are eligible, as long as they are current students at the time of applying.) All others (including Swarthmore College faculty and staff, as well as outside applicants) are encouraged to apply for the Moore Research Fellowship through a separate application process (click here).
Requirements: Recipient must spend one full week in Friends Historical Library and/or Peace Collection in the calendar year 2020 (between January 1 and December 31). Please note that the libraries are open 8:30a-4:30p, Monday through Friday and you are expected to spend the bulk of each day in the FHL and/or SCPC. Information about open hours and holiday closings can be found on our website. On your last day, you must give a very brief, very informal presentation (discussion) to FHL and SCPC staff about your research.
