14 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 Library Company of Philadelphia seeks a grant to fund post-doctoral fellowships over a period of three years. In 1987 the Library Company established a fellowship program, which now has more than 800 "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 Programs in Early American Economy and Society and African American History; long-term dissertation fellowships endowed by a local foundation; and long-term post-doctoral fellowships funded by a FPIRI grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our residential research center, 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 this vital program. (edited by NEH staff)
