Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography is now complete: a third cohort of 20 RBS-Mellon Fellows has been chosen.

“During the past two years, Rare Book School’s Mellon Fellows have been extraordinarily active, integrating bibliographical and book-historical methods into their research and teaching, while also sharing their new understandings with colleagues via innovative academic symposia,” said RBS Director Michael F. Suarez, S.J. “We remain deeply grateful to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for all it has done to make their achievements possible. Our third and final Mellon-supported cohort likewise shows great promise, and we much look forward to their contributions.” See the full press release.
