  • Postdoctoral Fellowships in Data Curation for Medieval Studies are designed by hosts who apply to the program and are selected by CLIR; CLIR pays full salaries for fellows.
  • Postdoctoral Fellowships in Academic Libraries are open to any discipline. Fellowships are designed and funded by hosts, who also pay fees to CLIR to cover the costs of fellows’ education.
