We regularly receive inquiries from scholars, particularly Emily Dickinson scholars, seeking funds to conduct research in our Archives and Special Collections. Competitive research funds would be a boon for scholars who wish to visit our rather remote location. Such money will also enable new scholarship in areas for which Amherst is known and in areas for which Amherst wants to be known.
We also send Amherst students to other libraries and archives to conduct original research. We take particular pride in the Folger Fellows program, a competitive program to which Amherst students can apply to spend a month at Amherst's Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington D.C.
