Grant of the Week: FAU-Huntington Graduate Research Fellowships

Zoe Jackson | Oct 4, 2017

Every week, AHA Today showcases a new grant, fellowship, or scholarship of interest to historians which has been posted to our free Calendar. This week we are featuring FAU-Huntington Graduate Research Fellowships. 

The Florida Atlantic University Libraries and the Huntington Library are jointly offering three short-term research fellowships for advanced graduate students. Fellows will spend the month of October 2018 in residence using Florida Atlantic University Libraries’ Marvin and Sybil Weiner Spirit of America Collection in Boca Raton, Florida. They may take the second month of the fellowship at the Huntington Library at any time between July 1, 2018 and June 30, 2019.

While at the Florida Atlantic University Libraries, fellows will meet together weekly along with FAU faculty and participate in academic programming. Fellows will be encouraged to submit a conference panel based on the materials they find in the collections and their discussions during the fellowship period. Applicants will receive $2,500 for one month at the Florida Atlantic University Libraries in Boca Raton using the materials from the Weiner Collection, and $3,000 for one month at the Huntington in San Marino, California. All successful candidates are expected to be in residence for the period of their fellowships at each institution.

The fellowship is open to doctoral candidates who have completed their qualifying exams and received approval for their dissertation proposal from their department. Applications are encouraged from advanced humanities graduate students in fields related to the collections, which are particularly strong in Anglo-American political philosophy, the American and French revolutions, the English Civil War, and religion and reform movements.

End: November 30, 2017
