Research Fellowship in Children's Literature

The Arne Nixon Center for the Study of Children’s Literature is pleased to announce two new funded programs. With gifts from an anonymous donor, the Center will award two Research Fellowships to support scholars from outside the Fresno/Clovis area engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent research. The Fellowships have been created in an effort to encourage innovative and robust inquiry into the varied aspects of children’s literature. Proposals will be chosen by committee and based on significance to the study of children’s literature, likelihood of publication or other dissemination of the work, and relevance of the project to the Center’s holdings. Acknowledgement of the Center in all published or otherwise disseminated material is required. Stipends up to $2000 will be awarded this fall to those who meet the given criteria. More information can be found on the Center’s website:
