Researchers have used the Kentucky Historical Society’s rich archival holdings to shed light on a vast array of topics, from frontier land distribution and law, to Civil War medicine and from river-borne commerce in the 19th century to Kentucky’s nuclear energy industry.

To help facilitate your research, KHS offers short-term fellowships (one to four weeks) to promote scholarship on any facet of Kentucky’s history.

We two two types of fellowships: General Fellowships and Oral History Use Fellowship . General Fellowships are available in two award cycles (March 1 and Oct. 1 each year) and the Oral History Use Fellowship is available annually (March 1).


KHS maintains online catalogs of artifacts, books, manuscripts, rare books and other types of collections. Our catalogs are always being updated with new materials.
