California Rare Book School 2014

The 2014 course schedule is now posted on the CalRBS Website ( and applications are being accepted.  CalRBS will be offering nine courses during Weeks 1 and 2 (August 4-15, 2014) in Los Angeles, and three courses during Week 3 (November 3-7, 2014) in San Francisco and Berkeley.

There are no deadlines for course applications, as each course remains open until it is full (maximum 12 students).  However, there are scholarships funded by multiple sources that have two application deadlines.  The first is June 15 for Weeks 1 and 2, and the second is August 15 for Week 3.  See the CalRBS Website ( for details and application forms.
