Grant of the Week: SHEAR DEI Research Fellowship

Alana Venable | Jan 28, 2022

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 2022–23 SHEAR DEI research fellowship program.


The Society for Historians of the Early American Republic will offer four research fellowships to scholars examining Latinx, Indigenous, Asian American, Pacific Island, and/or African diasporic history from 1776 to 1861. We are now seeking applications from interested scholars.

These fellowships may be used for research travel and/or purchasing microfilm, books, or other research-related materials. Interested scholars should submit a cover letter, CV, a one to two-page summary of their research project and plans, and a brief explanation of how the fellowship funds will be used in a single file. Applications are due February 1, 2022 to


Fellows will receive $3000 at the beginning of the fellowship for their research expenses. The following year fellows will receive support to travel to present their research at the SHEAR annual conference. Scholars who are from underrepresented backgrounds, early in their careers (graduate students or recent post-graduates), and/or contingent faculty are strongly encouraged to apply for a fellowship. 

End: February 1, 2022
