The principal aims of The Bibliographical Society of Canada are to promote bibliographical publications; to encourage the preservation and to extend the knowledge of printed works and manuscripts, particularly those relating to Canada; to facilitate the exchange of information concerning rare Canadiana; to coordinate bibliographical activity, and to set standards.
The Marie Tremaine Fellowship is offered in memory and through the generosity of Marie Tremaine (1902-1984), the doyenne of Canadian bibliographers. The Fellowship was instituted in 1987 and is offered annually to support the work of a scholar engaged in some area of bibliographical research, including textual studies and publishing history and with a particular emphasis on Canada. The amount of the Fellowship is $2,000.00. The recipient of the Marie Tremaine Fellowship also receives a free one-year membership in the society. Click here to access the application form.
The Fellowship will be awarded only in support of specific research projects involving discrete areas of research. Projects that are part of some larger undertaking will not be considered unless they can be completed on their own, and can lead to findings that are reportable or publishable in themselves.
All scholars may apply, except the members of the Bibliographical Society of Canada Executive and Awards and Fellowships Committees.
The funds available are for out-of-pocket expenses such as travel fares and subsistence, and technical services or supplies, and may not be used for salaries or stipends.
