The Roland Jackson Memorial Music Research Fellowship offers support for short-term research at The Claremont Colleges Library Special Collections. The Jackson Fellowship is open to researchers pursuing a project, the main subject focus of which is represented in the Roland Jackson Collection–performance practice, early music, 19th-century music, film music, and computer music studies–and whose research would benefit from on-site access to materials housed in Special Collections.

Awards of up to $1,500 will be based on the overall promise of the research project; the research project’s focus in subjects reflected in the Roland Jackson Collection; and the significance of The Claremont Colleges Library Special Collections to the work.

The Medgar and Myrlie Evers Institute and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History (MDAH), with support from the W.K.

This comprehensive scholarship of $4,000.00 will be awarded to an upper-level graduate student or early-career faculty member for research conducted at the Archives in summer 2019. The stipend may be used to cover travel, housing, and other expenses incurred while in Jackson.

The Mississippi Department of Archives and History is accepting applications for the 2019 Medgar and Myrlie Evers Research Scholars Program, which supports the use of primary resources documenting the Civil Rights Movement at the state archives in Jackson. This competitive scholarship of $4,000 is for research at MDAH during summer 2019 and covers travel, housing, and other expenses.

The Evers Scholar program is co-sponsored by the Medgar and Myrlie Evers Institute and the Mississippi Department of Archives and History, with support from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation. The application form is available for download here, and the deadline to receive applications is March 22.

“We’re delighted to partner with the Evers Institute and the Kellogg Foundation on this scholarship," said David Pilcher, director of the MDAH Archives and Record Services Division. “Our goal is to facilitate new and exciting research using the tremendous resources here at the state archives.”

Medgar Evers was state field secretary for the NAACP in Mississippi from 1954 until his assassination in 1963. Myrlie Evers, his widow, was also a civil rights activist and served as chair of the NAACP board of directors from 1995 to 1998.

The Medgar Wiley and Myrlie Beasley Evers Papers at MDAH include Evers and Beasley family papers dating from the early 1900s to around July 1964, when Myrlie Evers and her children moved to Claremont, California. The papers are divided into four subgroups: the papers of Medgar Evers as Mississippi field secretary of the NAACP; family papers of Medgar Evers; family papers of Myrlie Evers; and records relating to the case of the State of Mississippi v. Byron De La Beckwith.
