Long-Term Fellowships at the Massachusetts Historical Society

The equivalent of two twelve-month fellowships a year for three years.

The Massachusetts Historical Society requests a grant of $280,400 in outright funds and $20,000 in matching funds, a total of $300,400, for a program of long-term post-doctoral fellowships. To this sum the Society will add $20,000 raised from outside sources and $40,500 in its own funds, a total of $60,500. The initiative will complement three other research fellowship programs at the Society -- 1) short-term fellowships; 2) regional fellowships (in collaboration with the New England Regional Fellowship Consortium); and 3) a two-month Civil War fellowship (in collaboration with the Boston Athenaeum). In the Spring of 2009 the four research fellowship competitions the Society sponsors considered 235 applications and made 35 awards. Fellows employ these grants at the Society, where they make use of one of the great research collections for the study of American history.
