The MLA International Bibliography is accepting applications for three-year field-bibliography fellowships. MLA field bibliographers examine scholarly materials and submit citations and indexing information for inclusion in the bibliography. Open to scholars of any level of seniority who are MLA members, the 2018 fellowships will run from 1 July 2018 to 30 June 2021.
The MLA provides materials and training and waives registration fees for fellows attending training sessions at the MLA convention. On completion of the fellowship, fellows receive a $500 stipend and a certificate at the convention awards ceremony. Field bibliographers perform a valuable service for the profession and receive institutional recognition while deepening their knowledge of the field as well as their research skills.
For more information and to submit an application, visit the MLA Bibliography Fellowships Web page. Applications are due 1 April 2018.
