RA-234931-16

Massachusetts Historical Society (Boston, MA 02215-3631)
Conrad Edick Wright (Project Director: July 2015 to present)

Long-Term Research Fellowships at the Massachusetts Historical Society

16 months of stipend support (2-4 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The Massachusetts Historical Society requests a grant for a program of long-term post-doctoral fellowships. The MHS will add additional funds from outside sources and from fundraising or its own funds. The initiative will complement three other fellowship programs at the Society—1) short-term fellowships; 2) regional fellowships (in collaboration with the New England Regional Fellowship Consortium); and 3) a two-month Civil War fellowship (in collaboration with the Boston Athenaeum). In the spring of 2015 the four fellowship competitions the MHS sponsors considered 225 applications and made 44 awards. MHS-NEH Fellows employ their grants at the MHS, where they make use of one of the great collections for American history research. (edited by NEH staff)
