NEH-GBHI Scholarship

Rare Book School’s NEH-GBHI Scholarships are funded by a National Endowment for the Humanities matching grant received by RBS in December 2016. These scholarships form part of the School’s Global Book Histories Initiative (GBHI), an effort to increase course offerings relating to non-Western and immigrant book history and bibliography over the next several years. Eligible applicants from any allied field will come from underrepresented racial or ethnic groups, or will work with organizations primarily serving such groups. Successful applicants will demonstrate how they intend to share what they learn from RBS course content with colleagues in their own communities (e.g., presentations, publication, &c.). Scholarship recipients will receive $500 toward tuition to any RBS course, in Charlottesville or a remote location, as well as a stipend of $1,500 to help defray the costs of travel and lodging.
