NEH Post-Doctoral Fellowships at the Library Company of Philadelphia

Fourteen months of stipend support (2 to 3 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The Library Company of Philadelphia seeks a grant of $249,300 to fund up to 18 post-doctoral fellowship months each of three years. In 1987 the Library Company established a fellowship program, which now has more than 600 "alumni." Fellowship opportunities each year include about three dozen one-month grants; several long-term post-doctoral and dissertation fellowships through the Library Company's Program in Early American Economy and Society; long-term dissertation fellowships endowed by a local foundation; and several long-term post-doctoral fellowships funded by a FPIRI grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our residential research center in a renovated historic townhouse adjacent to our main building provides the kinds of facilities and amenities needed to support long-term NEH fellows and sustain a community of scholars. Our very positive experience with the previous NEH Fellows encourages us to apply for continued funding of this invaluable program.
