Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring the Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship from the American Antiquarian Society.
Scholars who are no more than three years beyond receipt of the doctorate are eligible to apply for the Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship, a special year-long residential fellowship at the American Antiquarian Society. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide the recipient with time and resources to extend research and/or to revise the dissertation for publication. Any topic relevant to the society’s library collections and programmatic scope—that is, American history and culture through 1876—is eligible.
Applicants may come from such fields as history, literature, American studies, political science, art history, music history, and others relating to America in the period of the society’s coverage. The society welcomes applications from those who have advance book contracts, as well as those who have not yet made contact with a publisher. The 12-month stipend for this fellowship is $35,000.
