ADMINISTERED BY THE CENTER FOR THE HISTORY OF BUSINESS, TECHNOLOGY AND SOCIETY
Hagley invites serious researchers to apply for one of our grants to defray the costs of an extended stay intended to use our collections. All grants require applicants to explain how their project will contribute new information to previous scholarship, and how Hagley’s research materials are pertinent to their project.
While at Hagley, grant recipients have many options to participate in our scholarly community as well as pursue their research agenda. These opportunities include participating in Stories from the Stacks, the Hagley Center’s researcher interview program; delivering informal afternoon talks in the library on their research; and writing a blog entry in Hagley’s Collections and Research News. Recipients also may stay in our onsite scholar’s housing, where they will likely meet other researchers.
Grant applicants should contact library staff in advance of submitting their application to help them determine if our collections support their projects. Stories from the Stacks interviews and blog entries by visiting scholars also offer insights into how our collections may be used and are worth reviewing as well.
Grants and fellowships are administered by the Hagley Center for the History of Business, Technology and Society.
The NEH-Hagley Postdoctoral Fellowship on Business, Culture, and Society supports residencies in Hagley’s Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society by scholars who have received their doctoral degrees by the application deadline. In accordance with NEH requirements, these postdoctoral fellowships are restricted to United States citizens or to foreign nationals who have been living in the United States for at least three years. These fellowships are made possible by support from the National Endowment for the Humanities.
Two postdoctoral fellowships are available, one of four months and one for eight months.
The eight-month fellowship must be taken during the September through May academic year. The fellowships provide a monthly stipend of $4,200, amounting to $33,600 for the eight-month fellowship and $16,800 for the four-month fellowship. Fellows receive complimentary lodging in the scholar’s housing on Hagley’s property for the duration of their residency, as well as office space and the full privileges of visiting scholars, including special access to Hagley’s research collections. They are expected to be in regular and continuous residence and to participate in the Center’s scholarly programs. They must devote full time to their study and may not accept teaching assignments or undertake any other major activities during their residency. Fellows may hold other major fellowships or grants during fellowship tenure, in addition to sabbaticals and supplemental grants from their own institutions, but only those that do not interfere with their residency at Hagley. Other NEH-funded grants may be held serially, but not concurrently.
