2023 BSC Fellowships – Call for applications

The Bibliographical Society of Canada (BSC) invites applications for the Marie Tremaine Fellowship and Bernard Amtmann Fellowship. 

Deadline for application: December 12, 2022

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.
