Established by the Eudora Welty Foundation and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, the $2,000 fellowship will be awarded to a graduate student for research using the department’s Eudora Welty Collection. The fellowship seeks to nurture scholars at the beginning of their academic careers, in order to increase their lifelong interest in, and promote continued academic and public appreciation of, Eudora Welty’s life and works.

The stipend may be used for travel, housing, and other expenses during the Welty fellow’s two-week minimum stay in Jackson Mississippi. To receive more information and an application click here. The deadline to apply is March 1, 2019.

The Eudora Welty Collection at the Mississippi Department of Archives and History is the premier collection of Eudora Welty materials in the world and one of the most varied literary collections in the United States. The collection includes manuscripts, letters, photographs, drawings, essays, and film and video footage that spans Welty’s entire life. Beginning in 1957, and over the course of more than forty years, Welty donated materials to the department, primarily literary manuscripts and photographs. At her death the remainder of her papers were bequeathed to MDAH and included unpublished manuscripts and 14,000 items of correspondence with family, friends, scholars, young writers, and noted writers. The collection may be accessed at the William F. Winter Archives and History Building, 200 North Street, Jackson.

For colleges and universities interested in sharing the fellowship opportunity, a flier is available here. For more information on the collection or the fellowship, contact Forrest Galey at 601-576-6850, or by email at fgaley@mdah.ms.gov.
