The Millstone Fellowship provides $2500 for research in France.  Eligibility is restricted to doctoral students, untenured and adjunct faculty members, and independent scholars who reside in North America and whose research related to French history and culture requires work in archives, libraries, or other repositories in France.  Preference is given to doctoral students and scholars in the early stages of their academic careers.

Applications should include the following:  a curriculum vitae, including current contact information; a description of the project not to exceed five double-spaced pages, explaining its purpose and significance, its contribution to scholarship on France, and where and when the research is to be carried out; and two letters of recommendation.  All materials should be submitted in electronic format as e-mail attachments in Microsoft Word. The e-mail must carry the header “Millstone Fellowship.” Candidates are responsible for seeing that letters of recommendation arrive in a timely fashion.  Proposals will be reviewed by a five-member committee chaired by the Vice-President of the Western Society for French History.  The next winner will be notified by 30 April 2016, and the award will be announced at the Annual Meeting in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
