The American Printing History Association (APHA) is accepting applications for the 2022 Mark Samuels Lasner Fellowship in Printing History. An award of up to $2,000 is available for research in any area of the history of printing, including all the arts and technologies relevant to printing, the book arts, and letter forms.
The Mark Samuels Lasner Fellowship supports the study of printing history, in any time period or geographic region. APHA fellowships are open to individuals of any nationality. Previous applicants are encouraged to re-apply. The fellowship can be used to pay for travel, living, and other expenses, including internet access, dependent care during the period of research, and fees for image reproduction.
Applications and supporting materials are due by Sunday, January 9, 2022. The fellowship will be formally awarded at the annual meeting of the American Printing History Association on Saturday, January 29, 2022. The meeting will be virtual. Full information, the application form, and a sample budget may be found on the APHA Fellowship page (https://printinghistory.org/programs/fellowship/).
