On January 9, 2017, The Strong announced the G. Rollie Adams Research Fellowships to provide financial support for scholarly play research conducted at the museum. These fellowships provide a new source of financial support for eligible academic professionals, independent scholars, museum scholars, and advanced graduate students at the masters or doctorate level that can benefit from on-site access to The Strong’s world-renowned collections. The program complements The Strong Research Fellowships established in 2012, the Mary Valentine and Andrew Cosman Research Fellowships launched in 2014, and the Frances M. Williams Research Fellowships established in 2015.
The Strong invites fellowship applications from academic professionals, independent scholars, museum scholars, and advanced graduate students at the masters or doctorate level living outside a 50-mile radius of The Strong. G. Rollie Adams Research Fellowships are awarded once a year and provide a $500 stipend per week for a maximum of four weeks.
Applications must be received by April 20 and be submitted electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
