The Adelle and Erwin Tomash Fellowship in the History of Information

The Charles Babbage Institute is accepting applications for the 2010-2011
Adelle and Erwin Tomash Graduate Fellowship. The fellowship will be
awarded to a graduate student for doctoral dissertation research in the
history of computing.

The fellowship may be held at the recipient's home academic institution,
the Charles Babbage Institute, or any other location with appropriate
research facilities. The stipend is $14,000. It is intended for students
who have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree except the
research and writing of the dissertation.

Preference will be given to applicants indicating a need to use CBI
materials, planning research in residence at CBI, and willing to make a
brief presentation of their research findings to CBI staff. Questions
pertaining to collection content and access can be directed to R. Arvid
Nelsen, CBI Archivist, at nels0307 at umn.edu.

Tomash Fellowship recipients must remain students in good standing
throughout the term of their fellowship, but there is no restriction on
holding other fellowships, scholarships, or awards concurrent to the
Tomash Fellowship.

To Apply:
Applicants should send to CBI a curriculum vitae and a five-page
(single-spaced) statement and justification of the research project
including a discussion of methods, research materials, evidence of faculty
support for the project, and bibliography (bibliography does not count
toward page count).

Applicants should also arrange for three letters of reference and
certified copies of graduate school transcripts to be sent directly to

Materials must be postmarked no later than January 15, 2010.
