The Center is now accepting applications for its 2014-15 cycle of Eadington fellowships. There is a major difference with this year's program: Resident (four week) fellowships can now be scheduled during the summer as well as during the academic year. Here is the full text of the announcement:

 

The Center for Gaming Research at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (http://gaming.unlv.edu) invites academic faculty and graduate students to apply for the 2014-15 cycle of William R. Eadington fellowships, which facilitate research into many aspects of both gambling and Las Vegas at UNLV Special Collections.  Although primarily in English, the holdings include many texts in French, German, and Italian spanning the 17th to 21st centuries as well as manuscript collections, casino corporate archives, promotional and publicity files, and government publications. 

The Center awards two kinds of Eadington fellowships.
