The Harley Fellowships – the only one of their kind in Europe – provide support of up to four weeks (normally at GBP 400 per week) for those, from any discipline, doing the equivalent of post-graduate level work in the historical map collections of the United Kingdom.

For the period 2013-2016, in addition to the normal J. B. Harley Fellowship awards open to anyone pursuing advanced research in the history of cartography, there are also Harley-Delmas Fellowships for research in the history of cartography during the European Renaissance to the Enlightenment c.1400-c.1800, kindly funded by the Gladys Krieble Delmas Foundation (at the equivalent to GBP 600 per week). All applicants should apply for a J. B. Harley Fellowship; eligibility for a Harley-Delmas award will be decided by the Selection Committee of the Trustees.

The extended closing date for applications is 8 JANUARY 2016.  The Fellowship website has an Application page that should provide all the necessary information as well as answering many frequently asked questions.

It would be helpful if you could say where you saw this notice.
