The Massachusetts Historical Society is offering Paid Fellowships

Massachusetts Historical Society Research Fellowships

The first of our deadlines, for MHS-NEH support, is January 15, 2017!

The Massachusetts Historical Society will offer more than three dozen research fellowships for the academic year 2017-2018, including two MHS-NEH Long-term Fellowships made possible by an award from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

The stipend, governed by an NEH formula, is $4,200 per month for a minimum of four months and a maximum of twelve months. The Society adds a monthly supplement, payable directly to the MHS-NEH Fellow, of $562.50.

MHS Short-term Fellowships carry a stipend of $2,000 to support four or more weeks of research in the Society’s collections.

The Boston Athenaeum and the MHS will offer one Suzanne and Caleb Loring Fellowship on the Civil War, its Origins, and Consequences for at least four weeks at each institution. This fellowship carries a stipend of $4,000. 

The Society also participates in the New England Regional Fellowship Consortium of twenty-two organizations.

These grants provide a stipend of $5,000 for a total of eight or more weeks of research conducted at three or more participating institutions.
