The Bibliographical Society of Canada (BSC) invites applications for the Marie Tremaine Fellowship and Bernard Amtmann Fellowship.
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.
The Bernard Amtmann Fellowship is offered in memory of Bernard Amtmann (1907-1979), the noted bookseller and specialist in Canadiana. The Fellowship was instituted in 1992 and is offered to support the work of a scholar engaged in one of Bernard Amtmann’s principal areas of interest: Canadiana, book collecting, bookselling and bibliography. Special consideration is given to applications from those working on some aspect of the book trade. The Fellowship, which is in the amount of $1,500, is also open to non-Canadians and to those who are not members of the Society.
The deadline for application is 12 December 2022.
