The Eadington Fellowships program, sponsored by the Center for Gaming Research in Special Collections & Archives, funds scholarly research into our collections on gaming and Las Vegas. Fellows conduct research, present a public talk, and write a brief paper that becomes part of the Center's Occasional Papers series. Application information, as well as links to podcasts of the public talks and the papers can be found on the Center for Gaming Research web site.
