Grant of the Week: Fellowships in Aerospace History
Every week, Perspectives Daily showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship that has been posted to our free community calendar. This week we are featuring the National Aeronautics Space Administration’s Fellowships in Aerospace History.
The Fellowships in Aerospace History are offered annually by the National Aeronautics Space Administration (NASA) to support significant scholarly research projects in aerospace history. These fellowships grant the opportunity to engage in significant and sustained advanced research in all aspects of the history of aerospace from the earliest human interest in flight to the present, including cultural and intellectual history, economic history, history of law and public policy, and the history of science, engineering, and management. NASA provides funds to the American Historical Association and to the History of Science Society to allow both associations to award fellowships. Representatives from the AHA, HSS, and SHOT comprise the review committee.
Applicants must possess a PhD in history or in a closely related field, or be enrolled as a student (having completed all coursework) in a doctoral degree-granting program. Preference will be given to scholars at early stages in their careers. Stipends may be awarded only to US citizens or permanent residents.
The stipend is $21,250 for a six- to nine-month fellowship, which includes travel expenses. Three fellowships will be offered for the 2022-23 term; applications will be entered into consideration for all three fellowships:
- AHA Fellowship in Aerospace History
- AHA Fellowship in the History of Space Technology
- HSS Fellowship in Aerospace History
End: April 18, 2022
