Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. We look for grants of potential interest to a wide range of scholars, but we also seek out grants for more specific fields. This week, we are featuring opportunities tied to the Library of Congress and NASA.
J. Franklin Jameson Fellowship
The J. Franklin Jameson Fellowship in American History is sponsored jointly by the AHA and the Library of Congress. It is awarded annually to support significant scholarly research in the collections of the Library of Congress by scholars at an early stage in their careers in history. PhD degree or equivalent required.
Applicants must have received this degree within the past seven years, and must not have published or had accepted for publication a book-length historical work. The fellowship will not be awarded to complete a doctoral dissertation. The fellowship has a stipend of $5,000 that will be awarded for two to three months, as the Jameson Fellow desires, to spend in full-time residence at the Library of Congress. The application deadline is April 1.
Fellowship in Aerospace History
The Fellowship in Aerospace History, supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), annually funds one or more research projects from six to nine months. Proposals of advanced research in history related to all aspects of aerospace, from the earliest human interest in flight to the present, are eligible, including cultural and intellectual history, economic history, history of law and public policy, and history of science, engineering, and management.
The fellowship is open to applicants who hold a doctoral degree in history or a closely related field, or who is enrolled in and has completed all course work for a doctoral degree-granting program. The stipend is $20,000. The deadline for application is April 1.
