Building the Future of Archival Education and Research represents a collaborative effort amongst eight colleges and universities to educate and train future archival faculty. Part of this effort will be four Archival Education and Research Institutes (AERI) held at three universities throughout the United States which are envisioned as strengthening education and research as well as supporting the development of cohorts and mentorship networks. The institutes are open to all faculty and archival doctoral students. Additionally, four doctoral students will receive full fellowships to one of the eight participating colleges or universities

About the Fellowship Doctoral Fellowships are currently available through a new eight-campus initiative for individuals who are interested in pursuing careers as educators and scholars in the field of Archival Studies and who would be entering a doctoral program in Fall 2010.
