*2009-2010 CBI Tomash Fellowship Announcement*

The Charles Babbage Institute is accepting applications for the 
2009-2010 Adelle and Erwin Tomash Graduate Fellowship. The fellowship 
will be awarded to a graduate student for doctoral dissertation research 
on the history of computing.

The fellowship may be held at the recipient's home academic institution, 
the Charles Babbage Institute, or any other location with appropriate 
research facilities. The stipend is $14,000. It is intended for students 
who have completed all requirements for the doctoral degree except the 
research and writing of the dissertation.

Preference will be given to applicants indicating a need to use CBI 
materials, planning research in residence at CBI, and willing to make a 
brief presentation of their research findings to CBI staff. Questions 
pertaining to collection content and access can be directed to R. Arvid 
Nelsen, CBI Archivist, at nels0307 at umn.edu <mailto:nels0307 at umn.edu>.

Tomash Fellowship recipients must remain students in good standing 
throughout the term of their fellowship, but there is no restriction on 
holding other fellowships, scholarships, or awards concurrent to the 
Tomash Fellowship. For more information, including eligibility and 
application procedures-- see
