Research fellowships at the William L. Clements Library, University of Michigan, exist to help scholars gain access to the Library’s rich array of primary sources on early American history. On almost any aspect of the American experience from 1492 through 1900, the Clements holdings—books, manuscripts, pamphlets, maps, prints and views, newspapers, photographs, ephemera—are among the best in the world.


The following post-doctoral fellowships require a completed Ph.D. or equivalent qualifications at the time of application:
