The National Historical Publications and Records Commission (NHPRC) is now accepting applications for the 2005-2006 year from archival repositories interested in serving as host institutions for an NHPRC Fellow in Archival Administration.
The position will focus on active hands-on experience in administration and management. This is an opportunity for professional archivists with at least one year of demonstrated experience to gain new or additional experience with archival administrative procedures and problems. Archives interested in applying to serve as host institutions should be able to expose the fellow to a wide variety of archival administrative experiences, as well as formal management or supervisory training, during the nine to twelve months the fellow will be associated with the host's program. In addition, the project director should be a mentor to the fellow and take an active role in the fellow's development.
The fellow's stipend is $40,000, with a benefit payment of $10,000. Host institutions are awarded $1,500, to interview prospective applicants and to use for the fellow's professional travel during the fellowship year.
The host institution will be chosen by December 1, 2005. Applications for prospective fellows will be made available at that time. Applications from potential fellows are due by March 1, 2006. The fellow will be selected by the host project from the pool of candidates who have applied to the NHPRC. The fellowship will begin in the late summer or early fall of 2006.
The Commission encourages any interested archives to contact the Commission staff to discuss their applications. The Commission staff will work with applicants to assure that their proposals include the range of administrative opportunities desired by the Commission.
