More Info:

The Linda Hall Library is now accepting applications for its 2020-21 fellowship program. These fellowships provide graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and independent scholars with financial support to make use of the Linda Hall Library’s collections, which document the history of science, engineering, and technology from the 15th century to the present. 


The Linda Hall Library is offering three types of fellowships this year:


1) Travel fellowships, lasting between one and three weeks, support brief, exploratory visits to the Linda Hall Library. Funding is available for up to $750/week to defray the costs of travel and living in Kansas City.


2) Residential fellowships, lasting between one and four months, support scholars conducting more extensive research using the Library’s collections. Fellowship funding is offered up to $3,000 per month for doctoral students and up to $4,200/month for postdoctoral scholars.


3) A new History of Science and Medicine fellowship, sponsored by the Linda Hall Library and the Clendening History of Medicine Library at the University of Kansas Medical Center, will provide a doctoral student with a $3,000 stipend to conduct research in both libraries’ collections for one month.


All application materials are due no later than January 17, 2020. For further information, visit or e-mail
