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.

Matthew Booker (Project Director: August 2020 to present)
Long-term Research Fellowships at the National Humanities Center

26 months of stipend support (3 fellowships) per year for three years.

The National Humanities Center, an independent center exclusively devoted to advanced humanities research, seeks three nine-month fellowships for the next three-year cycle (grant period January 1, 2022 - June 30, 2025). Since 1978, the NEH has generously supported NHC fellowships during each granting cycle. Designated "NEH Fellows," recipients of these awards are chosen through a rigorous vetting process and join a vibrant intellectual community of 30-40 total Fellows. Each works on a major research project throughout the academic year with significant support from our library staff and scholarly programs office. End-of-year evaluations from the roughly 1,500 Fellows who have been in residence generally describe their year at the NHC as the most inspiring and productive of their careers. The NHC focuses attention to diversity in all of its dimensions so that Fellows represent a broad range of disciplines, institutions, backgrounds, and perspectives.

Hagley Museum and Library (Wilmington, DE 19807-2106)
Roger Horowitz (Project Director: August 2020 to present)
Continuance of the NEH-Hagley Fellowship on Business, Culture, and Society

 12 months of stipend support (1 - 3 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

The Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society at the Hagley Museum and Library is applying for support from the National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship Program for Independent Research Institutes. We request 12 months of support each year for 3 years to continue our program of awarding the “NEH-Hagley Fellowship on Business, Culture, and Society,” the same amount previously awarded to us under the FPIRI program. Based on our experience from 2 previous round of FPIRI funding (and 4 applicant review cycles), we would award fellowships ranging from 4 to 12 months in length, with the number of fellowships determined by the durations assigned. Our targeted applicant pool is the large and expanding array of scholars who use records generated by business to explore the impact of firms on our nation, and indeed the world. We see these fellowships as attractive both to recent PhD recipients revising dissertations and mid-career faculty seeking support for sabbaticals.

Long-Term Advanced Research Fellowships at the American Research Institute in Turkey Overseas Research Centers

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

The ARIT NEH fellowship program aims to support scholars who conduct long-term interdisciplinary research in the humanities in Turkey. Their fields of study include art, archaeology, literature, linguistics, musicology, religion, and all aspects of cultural, social, and political history. ARIT long term fellows interact with Turkish, U.S, and other scholars at the ARIT research centers in Istanbul and Ankara, where their intellectual exchange promotes a broad-based understanding of the ancient and modern Middle East. This scholarly interaction has enabled former ARIT-NEH fellows to produce groundbreaking publications that have been shared with the public through their teaching and community outreach programs. ARIT center directors in Istanbul and Ankara facilitate access to research resources and colleagues in the country. For its NEH FPIRI program, ARIT requests 12 months total fellowship funding per year. Research tenures may cover 4 to 12 months, supporting 1 to 3 fellows annually.

SCS/NEH Fellowship at the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae

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

Since 1984 the Society for Classical Studies (SCS) has collaborated with the Thesaurus Institute in Munich, Germany, in order to provide an annual NEH-supported fellowship for an American scholar to spend a year at the Institute. Each fellow contributes lexicographical research to the Institute’s ongoing project, the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, which is an encyclopedic lexicon of the Latin language and a flagship project in lexicography. Fellows participate in the creation of a major reference resource by contributing original research, and join an international network of scholars. Through their work on the TLL and their independent research, fellows advance our understanding of the Latin language and its influence on modern languages and cultures.

Long-Term Research Fellowships at the John Carter Brown Library

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

The John Carter Brown Library – through its newly incorporated Research Foundation – seeks a renewal of funding for two to four long-term NEH fellowships a year (the equivalent of 20 months of annual funding) to encourage advanced scholarship and scholarly engagement using the Library's unique collection of materials related to the Americas, North and South, during the colonial period (roughly 1492-1825). As a consistent beneficiary of the FPIRI program for more than three decades, the Library hopes to continue the privilege of hosting NEH-sponsored fellows as a core – and indeed fundamental – component of its premier fellowship program. The result of research and writing conducted by NEH fellows will be shared with other scholars through NEH fellows’ teaching and scholarly presentations and projects, and with a broad and diverse set of publics via the Library’s own publications, exhibitions, and expanded online outreach in Rhode Island, throughout the US, and well beyond.

Long-Term Research Fellowships at the Newberry Library

48 months of stipend support (5 fellowships) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

Grants from the NEH’s Fellowship Program at Independent Research Institutions (FPIRI) have generously allowed the Newberry Library to invite outstanding scholars to pursue ground-breaking research using our extensive collections. In this application, the Newberry requests $382,500 over three years in direct FPIRI grants to provide 24 months per year of long-term fellowship stipends for carefully-selected researchers in the humanities. Further, the Newberry requests $180,000 over three years in matching FPIRI grants to offer an additional 24 months per year of long-term fellowship stipends (12 months funded by FPIRI grants; 12 months matched by the Newberry). A FPIRI grant and additional matching funds would allow the Newberry to begin to address high demand for scholarly use of our collections, enrich humanistic inquiry, and benefit the institution long after fellowship residencies.

Karin A. Wulf (Project Director: August 2019 to October 2021)

Long-Term Research Fellowships at the Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture

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

The Omohundro Institute’s NEH Fellowship is a residential fellowship program for early career scholars at work on their first books. Beyond the raw resources of primary source materials, scholars require time and expert critical feedback to complete the research and revisions required to turn a dissertation into a first book and these types of resources are highly prized and scarce. With its longstanding traditions as well as innovative engagement with all aspects of the research and publication process, the Omohundro Institute (OI) offers fellows a distinctive opportunity. The fellowship, originating in 1945 with the aim of developing research into publishable work, reflects the OI’s core mission of supporting scholars and scholarship within an intensive critical community. The evidence validating the OI’s approach is manifold in the scholarship produced and in the subsequent careers of the young scholars who have held OI fellowships.

The Fellowship Program at the American Research Center in Egypt (ARCE) awards fellowships to scholars whose research in the humanities and humanistic social sciences requires an extended period in Egypt to access documentation, museums, and monuments. Decades of close collaboration with the Egyptian Ministry of Antiquities (MoA) and Ministry of Higher Education (MoHE) enables ARCE to provide fellows with solid advice that eases access to Egyptian museums, monuments, archaeological sites, research libraries, archives, and Egyptian institutions of higher education. The program provides predoctoral (ABD), postdoctoral and senior faculty and scholars with research time, a supportive administrative and intellectual environment, and access to resources that may not be available elsewhere. ARCE fellows' research interests span all periods of Egyptian history from predynastic to the modern era. All fellowships provide sufficient funding to cover air transportation and associated living costs.

Long-Term Research Fellowships in Jordan at the American Center of Oriental Research

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

ACOR, founded a half century ago, facilitates research concerning Jordan and the broader Middle East. Its thriving fellowship program supports scholars at all stages of their careers. This funding is requested in order to better meet the research needs of postdoctoral scholars, both those new to MENA and those who may know it well. Long-term fellowships would help them complete critical fieldwork, such as interviews and site visits, and provide concentrated research and writing time in ACOR’s exceptional library. This would also allow for more chances for in-depth scholarly exchanges, which are inherent in an ACOR residential fellowship as the center is a natural place to connect with other residents as well as Jordanian academics and international scholars due to its programs.

Long-Term Research Fellowships at the Hagley Library

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

The Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society at the Hagley Museum and Library is requesting funding from the NEH for postdoctoral fellowships to continue our program of awarding the “NEH-Hagley Fellowship on Business, Culture, and Society.” We would award fellowships ranging from four to twelve months in length, with the number of fellowships determined by the durations assigned. Our targeted applicant pool is the large and expanding array of scholars who use records generated by business to explore the impact of firms on our nation, and indeed the world. We see these fellowships as attractive both to recent PhD recipients revising dissertations for publication and mid-career faculty seeking support for sabbatical leave. With the Hagley Library’s own deep research collections on business, and the Center’s extensive scholarly networks, we are confident that these postdoctoral fellowships will attract a strong applicant pool.

12 months of stipend support (one fellowship) per year for three years and a contribution to defray costs associated with the selection of fellows.

Since 1984 the Society for Classical Studies has collaborated with the Thesaurus Institute in Munich to provide an annual NEH-supported fellowship for an American scholar to spend a year there contributing research to the Institute’s project, the Thesaurus Linguae Latinae, which is an encyclopedic lexicon of classical Latin to c. 600 CE and a flagship project in lexicography. Fellows join an international network of scholars engaged in creating this fundamental scholarly resource, gain deep familiarity with an enormous range of Latin texts and genres outside the narrow literary canon, and publish several signed articles in the lexicon on individual Latin words, while advancing their own research agendas. The research conducted by the fellows increases our understanding of the Latin language and its influence on modern languages and cultures. The SCS requests a three-year grant to continue this important fellowship, covering one twelve-month fellowship for three years.
