Congratulations to the 2016-2017 University Library Fellows

The University Library granted fellowships to six scholars to further their research using the holdings of Special Collections and University Archives at the Richard J. Daley Library and the Library of the Health Sciences-Chicago in the inaugural year of its grant program. In spring 2016, three Short-Term Travel Fellowships were awarded to individuals from Canada, the United States and the United Kingdom. In addition, three University of Illinois at Chicago Graduate Student Fellowships were awarded to UIC scholars. The Short-Term Travel Fellowship gives individual researchers, teachers and writers of any nationality who live outside of the Chicago metropolitan area the opportunity to travel to UIC to conduct research. The UIC Graduate Student Fellowship is open to students who are enrolled in a graduate degree program in any discipline at UIC.
