The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives welcome applications for the Carrie Johnson Fellowship, which is gifted to graduate students, faculty, and/or independent scholars pursuing research on Butte, Montana or Silver Bow County history.

Fellowship awards of $1,000 – $3,000 will be made on an annual basis. Award funds are to be used for research support, including travel and lodging expenses, but not as salary. Awards are to be used for scholarly projects including preparation of seminar papers, theses, dissertations, monographs, and book-length projects.

Each recipient is expected to be in residence conducting research for the equivalent of three weeks between May 1 and October 31. Fellows are expected to make use of the Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives collections and to submit a written report upon completion of the research. Recipients will acknowledge the Friends of the Butte Archives in the publications and projects produced from their residency and provide a copy of any projects created from their research.

Applications are due March 1.
