With Willy Bretscher Fellowships, the Zentralbibliothek Zürich supports researchers who pursue a digital humanities approach in their project, have a temporal focus on the 20th century and draw on holdings or data of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich.
The possible duration of a fellowship is three to twelve months and is endowed with CHF 4,000 per month. The selected fellows present their projects to the public. The applications are evaluated by a selection committee consisting of members of the Zentralbibliothek and the University of Zurich. Applications for the first call cycle are open until 30 September 2021.
