NEH Post-Doctoral Fellowships at the Library Company of Philadelphia

The equivalent of one fellowship a year for three years.

The Library Company of Philadelphia seeks a grant of $138,000 to fund up to 12 post-doctoral fellowship months for each of three years. In 1987 the Library Company established a fellowship program, which now has more than 400 alumni. Fellowship opportunities each year include about two dozen one-month grants as well as long-term post-doctoral and dissertation fellowships through the Library Company's Program in Early American Economy and Society and long-term post-doctoral fellowships funded by the initial FPIRI grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities. Our recent creation of a residential research center in a newly-renovated historic townhouse immediately 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 first cohort of NEH Fellows (and theirs with us!) encourages us to apply for continued funding of this invaluable program.
