A major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation has allowed the Schlesinger Library to launch the Long 19th Amendment Project interrogating the centennial of American women’s suffrage. The grant will fund up to three eight-week residencies each June–July in 2019, 2020, and 2021 for researchers doing advanced work on the gender and suffrage, voting rights, citizenship, or other related topics. Successful projects will draw in meaningful ways on Schlesinger Library collections. The stipend for each award is $15,000.

We will consider applications from clusters of two or three researchers as well as from individuals. Such collaborations could produce a range of materials, from co-authored books and articles, to course syllabi, to datasets or interview transcripts, to podcasts and video modules. College and university faculty, secondary school teachers, and other advanced researchers in any relevant discipline are invited to apply for Mellon-Schlesinger Summer Research grants. Currently enrolled graduate students are not eligible for these awards and should apply instead for Schlesinger Library’s Dissertation Support Grants (see below).


Applications must be received by Thursday, November 15, 2018. Awards will be announced in late January 2019 to be used for an eight-week residency June–July 2019.

Apply now via online application. Candidates must apply online for all Schlesinger Library Grant offerings.
