Special Collections Teaching Fellowships

Each year, the Baylor Libraries offer teaching fellowships to support excellence in teaching and learning and provide opportunities for original research by encouraging the use of rare books, archives, and other special collections materials in Baylor graduate and undergraduate curricula.

Fellowships are available for full-time Baylor faculty members (including tenured and tenure-track faculty, regular lecturers and senior lecturers) and graduate teaching assistants (teachers of record). Fellowship recipients will receive a stipend of $1,000 (after taxes). Past recipients of teaching fellowships who wish to explore additional possibilities are eligible to reapply. Preference, however, may be given to first-time applicants.

For details on fellowship requirements and application procedures, click on the library or collection of interest below. All applications are due by April 9, 2021. Recipients will be notified by April 30, 2021.
