SHARP-RBS Scholarship Fund
Rare Book School (RBS) and the Society for the History of Authorship, Reading and Publishing (SHARP) have collaborated to establish the “SHARP-RBS Scholarship,” a new program to offer scholarships for graduate students and recent Ph.D.s who wish to attend courses at RBS. This scholarship opportunity will allow a “legacy of learning” to enrich the teaching and acquiring of the skills needed by book historians. Thus, this scholarship will help keep our vibrant field of study not only alive, but very lively indeed.
RBS is a crucial component of the education and training of book historians. Your donation will allow deserving students to take part in the amazingly intensive and productive courses offered at RBS. The more funds we raise, the more scholarships will be awarded, both this year and over the next many years. SHARP hopes to expand this initiative in future years to support the teaching and learning of book historical skills in other institutions worldwide.
Thank you for supporting the ongoing education of young book historians!
