Special Collections Research Center Faculty Fellows Program
The Syracuse University Libraries' Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) is now accepting proposals for two faculty fellows who would like to provide students with a one-of-a-kind opportunity to handle, analyze, and interpret SCRC's primary source materials in their classes. The SCRC Faculty Fellows program aims to support innovative curriculum development and foster new ideas about how to transform the role of special collections in university instruction. Each fellow will receive a $5,000 stipend, a hands-on introduction to the collections, and ongoing course support.
The SCRC Faculty Fellows Program is made possible through the generosity of the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation, which promotes the advancement and perpetuation of humanistic inquiry and artistic creativity by encouraging excellence in scholarship and in the performing arts, and by supporting research libraries and other institutions that transmit our cultural heritage.

Since 1949 Syracuse University has assembled historical documents, including manuscript, print, visual, and media materials, related to adult education. This material is known collectively as the Alexander N. Charters Library for Educators of Adults, in recognition of Dr. Charters' efforts in promoting and expanding our adult education holdings. Through the generosity of Dr. Charters, we are also able to offer annual grants to one or more scholars or practitioners wishing to do research in our adult education collections. For more information on the collections and their history, see the Charters Library website.
Extended Application Deadline: March 20, 2017
