More Info:


The Linda Hall Library is now accepting applications for its 2022-23 fellowship program. These fellowships provide graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and independent scholars in the history of science and related fields with financial support to explore the Library’s outstanding science and engineering collections. Fellows also participate in a dynamic intellectual community alongside in-house experts and scholars from other Kansas City cultural and educational institutions.

The Library is offering three types of fellowships during the 2022-23 academic year:


– Residential fellowships (1-4 months) support scholars who travel to Kansas City to conduct research in the Library's collections.


The History of Science and Medicine fellowship (1 month) supports a doctoral student who travels to Kansas City to conduct research at the Linda Hall Library and the Clendening History of Medicine Library at the University of Kansas Medical Center.


– Virtual fellowships (1-4 months) support scholars working remotely using the Library’s digital collections. Virtual fellows receive personalized research assistance from reference staff and may request additional scans in accordance with our in-house digitization policies.


In each case, fellowship funding is offered at a rate of $3,000/month for doctoral students and $4,200/month for postdoctoral researchers.



Applications are due on January 21, 2022. For further information, visit or e-mail
