The Research Society for Victorian Periodicals (RSVP) is pleased to announce the competition for the ninth annual Curran Fellowships, a set of travel and research grants intended to aid scholars studying 19th-century British magazines and newspapers in making use of primary print and archival sources. The Curran Fellowships are made possible through the generosity of the late Eileen Curran, Professor Emerita of English, Colby College, and inspired by her pioneering research on Victorian periodicals. This year, RSVP anticipates awarding at least six fellowships of as much as $5000 each.
