NEH & PEAES Post-Doctoral Fellowships for 2018-2019
National Endowment for the Humanities Post-Doctoral Fellowships
National Endowment for the Humanities Post-Doctoral Fellowships support research in residence at the Library Company on any subject relevant to its collections, which are capable of supporting research in a variety of fields and disciplines relating to the history of America and the Atlantic world form the 17th through the 19th centuries. NEH Fellowships are for individuals who have completed their formal professional training. Consequently, degree candidates and individuals seeking support for work in pursuit of a degree are not eligible to hold NEH-supported fellowships. Advanced degree candidates must have completed all requirements, except for the actual conferral of the degree, by the application deadline, November 1, 2017. Foreign nationals are not eligible to apply unless they have lived in the United States for the three years immediately preceding the application deadline. NEH fellowships are tenable for four to nine months. The stipend is $4,200 per month.
THE DEADLINE FOR RECEIPT OF APPLICATIONS IS NOVEMBER 1, 2017 with a decision to be made by December 15. Make just one application; you will automatically be considered for all the fellowships for which you are eligible. To apply, go to the application page to fill out an online coversheet and upload a single portable document format (PDF) containing a brief résumé, a two- to four-page description of proposed research, and a writing sample of no more than 25 pages. In addition, two letters of recommendation should be submitted online in PDF format.
Candidates are strongly encouraged to inquire about the appropriateness of the proposed topic before applying.
