The University Libraries invite current graduate students from all CU Boulder colleges to apply for the 2021 Provost’s Fellowship in Information Science for the University Libraries.

Woman reading book

From data curation to archival management to information literacy, librarians are organizing, preserving and providing access to information in ever-changing formats. This fellowship provides CU Boulder graduate students at the master’s and PhD levels with the opportunity to expand their understanding of libraries’ and librarians’ roles in the evolving information ecosystem. 

During the spring semester, fellows will work with a library faculty mentor to explore the intersections of people, technology and information. The fellowship must begin in the Spring 2021 semester, although fellows may continue to work on their projects into the summer. Due to the ongoing pandemic, we ask that projects be completed remotely. 

Fellows will be awarded $1,500 for 100 hours of participation in the program. 

Applicants are welcome to submit original project ideas or develop a project based on ideas submitted by participating librarians. Mentors and fellows will work together to shape the projects to fit the libraries’ and fellows’ interests and needs. 

Application materials must be submitted by December 20. The deadline to apply is December 20. For more information, visit the Libraries’ Provost’s Fellows page
