The Clements Center also offers research grants to applicants who live
outside the greater Dallas-Fort Worth area to encourage a broader and
more intensive use of the special collections at DeGolyer Library. The
$500 a week grant is awarded for periods of one to four weeks to help de-
fray costs of travel, lodging, and research materials. Applicants should
provide a project outline, correlating its pertinence to the DeGolyer Li-
brary collection and the requested length of research time. Applicants
should also include a curriculum vitae and two letters of reference from
persons who can assess the significance of the project and the scholarship
record of the applicant. In exchange, grant recipients are expected to
consult with DeGolyer Library staff about available resources in their spe-
cialty area and to recommend the acquisition of additional research ma-
terials that will deepen the library's collection. Recipients also might be
asked to deliver an informal lecture or seminar talk on their research top-
ic. Deadline for applications is March 17, 2003. Awards will be an-
nounced April 7, 2003. Send applications to David Weber, Director,
Clements Center for Southwest Studies, Dallas Hall, Room 356, 3225
University Ave., P.O. Box 750176, Dallas, TX 75275-0176. For more in-
formation, please contact Andrea Boardman, Executive Director, at
(214) 768-1233 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Clements Center also welcomes applications for three Bill and Ri-
ta Clements Research Fellowships for the Study of Southwestern America.
Individuals in any field in the humanities or social sciences doing re-
search on Southwestern America are invited to apply. The fellowships are
designated to provide time for senior or junior scholars to bring book-
length manuscripts to completion. Fellows will be expected to spend the
2003-2004 academic year at SMU and to participate in Clements Center
activities. Each fellow will receive the support of the Center and access to
the extraordinary holdings of the DeGolyer Library. Fellowships carry a
stipend of $37,000 annually, health benefits, a $2,00o allowance for re-
search and travel expenses, and a publication subvention. Fellows have
the option of teaching one course during the two-semester duration of
the fellowship for an additional stipend. Applicants should send a copy of
their vita, a description of their research project, and a sample chapter or
extract (if the sample is from a dissertation, please include the introduc-
tion), and arrange to have letters of reference sent from three persons
who can assess the significance of the work and the ability of the scholar
to carry it out. Send applications to David Weber, Director, Clements Cen-
ter for Southwest Studies, Dallas Hall, Room 356, 3225 University Ave.,
P.O. Box 750176, Dallas, TX 75275-0176. Applications must be received
