2016 Ephemera Society of America Philip Jones Fellowship Announcement

The Ephemera Society of America invites applications for the Philip Jones Fellowship for the Study of Ephemera.

This competition, now in its eighth year, is open to any interested individual or organization for the study of any aspect of ephemera, defined as minor (and sometimes major) everyday documents intended for one-time or short-term use. It is expected that this study will advance one or more aims of the Society:

To cultivate and encourage interest in ephemera and the history identified with it
To further the understanding, appreciation, and enjoyment of ephemera by people of all ages, backgrounds, and levels of interest
To promote the personal and institutional collection, preservation, exhibition, and research of ephemeral materials
To serve as a link among collectors, dealers, institutions, and scholars
To contribute to the cultural life of those who have an interest in our heritage as a nation or a people, both nationally and internationally
