The Second Shelf Scholarship for Women
Applications for the 2018 Second Shelf Scholarship are now closed.
The Second Shelf is a new business dedicated to selling and championing rare books, first editions, and rediscovered work by women. In consideration of the historic imbalance and inequality of women in the book trade, and also in the interest of providing access to women who might otherwise not be able to afford to attend York Antiquarian Books Seminar, The Second Shelf will provide full tuition fees and four nights accommodation to a woman wishing to pursue her personal or professional interest in rare books. The accommodation will be booked and paid for on your behalf.
To apply please send a brief cover letter to email@example.com (not firstname.lastname@example.org as was previously stated) with personal background and a statement of interest in rare books (CV optional) and how a scholarship would assist in your pursuits.
Please ensure you use the correct email address of email@example.com. Apologies to anyone to who has already submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have already submitted, please re-apply to the correct email address. The provider is no longer able to access the original email address provided. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.
Applications to arrive no later than Friday 1st June 2018 – the recipient will be notified by June 15, 2018.
