The Mount Research Award

The Mount Research Award 
Awards offered in alternate years.
In 2015, the Edith Wharton Society will offer a Mount Research Award to enable a scholar to conduct research on Edith Wharton’s library at the Mount in Lenox, MA.
Prospective fellows for the 2013-14 award are asked to submit a research proposal (maximum length 5 single-spaced pages) and a CV by the deadline to
Meredith Goldsmith
Department of English
Ursinus College
601 E. Main Street
Collegeville, PA 19426-1000
mgoldsmith@ursinus.edu
The research proposal should detail the overall research project, its particular contribution to Wharton scholarship, the preparation the candidate brings to the project, and the specific relevance that materials in Wharton’s library at the Mount have for its completion. The funds need to be used for transportation, lodging, and other expenses related to a stay at the Mount.
Notification of the award will take place by April 15th and the award can be used from May 1, 2012 until May 1. A final report will be due June 1. The Winner will be asked at that point to submit a short report essay to the Edith Wharton Review, which will briefly inform the readers of the EWR of the research done but will not be in the way of the winner publishing a scholarly article elsewhere as well.
