Applications are due February 2 for the 2023 Berea College Media Archives Fellowship, an outreach program of the Special Collections and Archives (SCA) department of the College’s Hutchins Library.

The program supports the scholarly use of SCA’s non-commercial audio and video collections which are especially strong in the areas of traditional music, religious expression, folklore, radio programs, and oral history. These media assets include oral histories, public addresses, music performances, radio broadcasts, and spoken word recordings. The recordings allow a wide range of inquiry from Appalachian religion, linguistics, and traditional folkways to modern environmentalism and social justice issues. Scholars using the Media Archives are also benefited by access to supporting contextual data found in the print, manuscript, archive, and photographic holdings of SCA.

Two fellowships of $1,400 (for a two consecutive week commitment) will be granted in 2023. The monetary stipend is envisioned as partial support for travel and lodging expenses. It is not designed to pay all the researcher’s expenses.

The 2023 Media Archives Fellowships will take place between July 1 2023 and June 30, 2024.

For more information about the award and details on the application process, please visit the SCA website. Inquiries can be sent to Harry Rice [email protected].
