Folger Institute Scholarly Programs

As a member of the Folger Institute Consortium, the Center provides opportunities for students to participate in Folger Institute scholarly programs, which gather advanced scholars to work together at the Folger Shakespeare Library, researching specific topics relating to Shakespeare and his time. For these programs, our students receive priority considerations in competitive application review, they become eligible to request grants-in-aid for travel and lodging, and, if admitted, have their registration fees automatically waived. Additionally, our students at the dissertation stage enjoy eligibility for admission to an annual dissertation seminar lead by the foremost minds in the field. For more information on the scholarly programs and current offerings at the Folger Institute, their course listings for this academic year are here.

If you are interested in applying for a Folger Institute program please contact our Folger representative, Center Director Marjorie Rubright,  at
