The award is open to applicants with an academic background (from PhD student to senior staff) in any discipline and to library professionals with an interest in book or library history or practice-based research.
The aim of the fellowships is to further knowledge of the history of the Bamburgh Library, its contents and its previous owners, and to support the dissemination of this knowledge to academic and non-academic audiences.

Each fellow will be required to contribute a research output (e.g. a lecture or article) and to write a report on their fellowship as a condition of their acceptance of the award. Imaginative proposals for wider dissemination of their research will be welcomed. Both Durham University and the Lord Crewe's Charity must be acknowledged in any resulting output from the fellowship.
