Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at the Library Company of Philadelphia

The equivalent of one twelve-month and one six-month fellowship a year for three years.

The Library Company of Philadelphia seeks a renewal grant of $320,400 to fund 18 post-doctoral fellowship months for each of 3 years. The Library Company's fellowship program, established in 1987, now boasts over 550 alumni. The Cassatt House, the Library's residential research center, helps to sustain this community of scholars, and the availability of the collections of the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the proximity of the still larger community of scholars at Penn's McNeil Center for Early American Studies further enhance the fellowship experience. The Library Company's first NEH FPIRI grant was awarded in 2004 and renewed in 2007. In view of the success of the program and the sharply increased number of applicants, this application seeks to double the number of fellows to 2 per year, or 4 if one-semester awards are made. NEH fellowships have played an invaluable part in the Library Company's research program, and we believe the time is right to expand their role.
