Long-term Research Fellowships at the American Antiquarian Society

24 months of stipend support (2-6 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The American Antiquarian Society (AAS) is an independent research library of early American history, literature, and culture through 1876 located in Worcester, MA. Founded in 1812, the Society's collections include over four million items--the largest collection of early American printed materials anywhere in the world. Building on decades of support from the Endowment, the AAS is applying for renewal funding for its program of long-term fellowships, to run from 1/1/2019 through 6/30/2022, for thirty fellowship months per year, enabling scholars from around the country and a variety of career stages to visit AAS to conduct sustained research for a period of 4 to 12 months. These fellowships are crucial to the Society's robust set of scholarly programs, and to its mission of fostering innovative humanities research of the highest quality that presents the unique holdings of the Society's library to a broad set of audiences.
