The Phillips Library is pleased to announce the availability of a Frances E. Malamy Fellowship.

About the Frances E. Malamy Fellowship

One recipient will be awarded the Frances E. Malamy Fellowship to perform independent scholarly research at the Phillips Library, located at 306 Newburyport Turnpike in Rowley, MA.  Fellowships awarded in 2019 can be taken between March 1, 2019 and December 31, 2019. Malamy Fellows are expected to be in residence for a minimum of eight weeks, though these do not have to be consecutive weeks. Research must include primary use of archival materials held at the Phillips Library, and/or archiving activities under the direction of the Phillips Library staff.

The recipient will receive a $5,500 award, payable in two equal installments, at the middle and conclusion of his/her residency. The recipient will be asked to write a blog for the library or to present his/her research at a brown bag lunch. This fellowship does not include housing.


The Malamy fellowship is available to U.S. citizens, green card holders, and holders of an F1 student visa or a J1 practicum/training visa.

Doctoral students, post-doctoral, academics, and independent scholars, as well as curators, and other library, archive and museum professionals, are welcome to apply.


All application materials, including references, must be received by 11:59 pm on January 15, 2019. Materials may be submitted electronically or via post to Library Fellowship Committee / 306 Newburyport Turnpike / Rowley, MA 01969.
