RA-278134-21

American Philosophical Society (Philadelphia, PA 19106-3387)
Patrick K. Spero (Project Director: August 2020 to present)
NEH FPIRI Postdoctoral Fellowship at the American Philosophical Society

12 months of stipend support (1 - 2 fellowships) per year for two years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The American Philosophical Society’s (APS) Library & Museum requests a NEH FPIRI grant of $262,350 to support one twelve-month (or two six-month) residential postdoctoral fellowship in each of three years beginning in 2022-2023. Experience has shown that a vibrant fellowship program enhances the intellectual quality of programming for all resident fellows, strengthens ties among research and cultural heritage institutions in the Philadelphia area, and supports the discovery of new knowledge based on Library & Museum collections. A FPIRI-supported fellowship will allow the APS Library & Museum to better satisfy the overwhelming demand it has experienced for research support from humanities scholars who seek access to its collections and participation in its thriving fellowship community.
