Grant of the Week: History of Science & National Aeronautics and Space Administration Fellowship

Vanessa Varin | Mar 15, 2013


The History of Science Society Fellowship in the History of Space Science (HSS), supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) History Division, funds a nine-month research project that is related to any aspect of the history of space science, from the earliest human interest in space to the present.

The Fellowship term is for a period of nine months during the period 1 July to 30 June of the following year. The Fellow will be expected to devote the term largely to the proposed research project. The starting and ending dates within that period are flexible. Sources of anticipated support must be listed in the application form. The stipend for 2013-14 will be $21,250.

Applicants must possess a doctorate degree in history of science or in a closely related field, or be enrolled as a student in a doctoral degree-granting program and have completed all requirements for the Ph.D., except the dissertation, in history of science or a related field. Eligibility is not limited to U.S. citizens or residents. Please note that any participant receiving support under a NASA grant may not concurrently hold another Federal fellowship. All applications for the 2013-14 Fellowship are due by 1 April 2013.

For more information about the fellowship, please visit their website. For information on other grants and prizes in history, see the “Awards and Fellowships” section of the AHA Calendar.
