LGBTQ Research Fellowship Program

Since the inception of the LGBTQ Research Fellowship Program in 2018, we have welcomed more than 20 graduate students, scholars, and independent researchers to ONE Archives at the USC Libraries. Each Fellow receives up to $1,500 to support their work and provide access to the collections at ONE. Desired outcomes of the Fellowship include scholarly writings, publications, media and art projects.

To learn more about the Fellows’ research interests and their engagement with the collections at ONE, check out the From the Reading Room blog!
