Grant of the Week: American Antiquarian Society Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship

Sadie Bergen | Sep 25, 2015

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 the Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship from the American Antiquarian Society.

The Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship provides a scholar who is within three years of receiving the PhD 12 months in residence at the American Antiquarian Society to add to and revise the dissertation for publication. The purpose of the post-dissertation fellowship is to provide the recipient with time and resources to extend research and/or to revise the dissertation for publication. Any topic relevant to the Society’s library collections and programmatic scope–that is, American history and culture through 1876–is eligible.

The stipend for the Hench Fellowship is $35,000.

Application deadline is October 15, 2015.

Further information about the fellowship, along with application materials, is available on the AAS website. Any questions about the fellowship may be directed to: Paul Erickson, director of academic programs at AAS, at perickson@mwa.org.

The AHA offers a free Calendar advertising awards, meetings, and exhibits. Submit your own announcements to our Calendar.
