Audience: Undergraduate, graduate, and professional students interested in doing research with Yale Library's special collections, as well as any student in the Class of 2023 who is using library collections as part of their Senior Essay.

About the Student Exhibit Opportunities:

Student Research at Yale Library

Two students will be selected to curate an exhibit based on their research using material from Yale Library collections. The selected students will receive mentoring and support to transform their completed research into a physical exhibit utilizing production tools, templates, technical expertise, and guidance from Yale Library’s exhibit professionals. 

The selected students will have their exhibits on display in the Sterling Library Exhibition Corridor from October 2022 to May 2023.

Proposals due: February 14, 2022

Senior Exhibit Fellowship at Yale Library

One rising senior (Yale College 2023) will be selected to receive a $4,200 stipend to support a summer research fellowship, mentoring, and exhibit production support over the course of nine months to create and curate a professional-quality exhibit. The five-week summer research fellowship using Yale Library collections during summer 2022, will become the foundation of their exhibit which will open May of 2023.
