New CART Fellowship, 2023-2024

Apply for the NEW CART Fellowship

The University Library’s Center for Archival Research and Training (CART) invites applications for one graduate fellowship in the 2023-2024 academic year. The Fellow will be trained in archival theory and practice, make collections available for research through archival processing, conduct research with Special Collections & Archives collections, curate a public exhibition, and co-organize programming around archives topics for the UCSC community. The Fellow will be expected to devote 20 hours per week to CART during Fall, Winter, and Spring quarters (September 2023 to June 2024), and not to hold teaching assistantships or other employment. Partial-year fellowships will not be awarded. 


Application deadline: May 1, 2023

Amount: $25,000 year-long stipend ($8,333 per quarter) plus in-state tuition, fees, and health insurance. This amount is subject to adjust based on the 2023-2024 graduate student cost to attend for California residents, in order to match current teaching assistantship funding.

Number of fellowships: 1

Eligibility: Currently enrolled in a graduate program at UCSC at least through June 2024. (at least five credits, not on leave or filing fee, in good academic standing, within normative time).


See the "Apply to be a Fellow" page for more information and to submit your application.
