McGill-ASECS Fellowship



About the Fellowship

The Burney Centre, in conjunction with the Rare Books and Special Collections Division of the McGill University Library, offers an annual Fellowship, designed to assist scholars who need to travel to and establish temporary residence in Montreal in order to use the resources of the Library. The Fellowship is available to scholars interested in any aspect of Frances Burney, the Burney family, and their extended circle. It carries an award of US $3,000 for a one-month stay, at a time to be arranged.

The Fellowship is funded by:
  • The American Society for Eighteenth-Century Studies (ASECS)
  • McGill University Library
  • McGill Faculty of Arts
  • McGill Department of English

    Many thanks for the generous support of our sponsors for making this fellowship available.
