Grant of the Week: Omohundro Institute-NEH Postdoctoral Fellowship 2015-2017

Jacob Ingram | Sep 19, 2014

The Omohundro Institute of Early American History and Culture offers a two-year residential postdoctoral fellowship in any area of early American studies, to begin July 1, 2015. A principal criterion for selection is that the candidate’s dissertation or other manuscript has significant potential as a distinguished, book-length contribution to scholarship. A substantial portion of the work must be submitted with the application. The Omohundro Institute holds first claim on publishing the appointed fellow’s completed manuscript.

Fellows devote most of their time to research and writing, work closely with the editorial staff, and participate in colloquia and other scholarly activities of the Institute. Fellows have access to all research facilities, lectures, and events at the College of William & Mary and the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation. One year is devoted to research and writing, and one year is for teaching at William & Mary.

The fellowship is supported by the National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship Programs at Independent Research Institutions for the first year ($4,200 x 12 months) and by the Omohundro Institute for the second year ($4,200 x 12 months). In addition to the stipend of $50,400 per year, the fellowship provides office, research, and computer facilities as well as some travel funds for conferences and research. Fellows also have the option of spending a summer at the Huntington Library on a full grant within five years of their residency in Williamsburg.

For more information on the fellowship, including submission guidelines and a link to begin the application process, go to the fellowship’s page within the Calendar of Events.
