Grant of the Week: AAS Academic Fellowships

Karen Lou | Sep 24, 2019

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 AAS Academic Fellowships.


The American Antiquarian Society (AAS) is the leading archive in the United States for research in pre-twentieth-century U.S. history, literature, and culture. In addition to unsurpassed resources focused on the history and culture of the United States, AAS holds rich collections of materials dealing with Canada, Latin America, and the Caribbean. AAS collections focus on all aspects of American life from contact to 1876, and provide rich source material for projects across the spectrum of early American studies. The AAS invites applicants to discover these resources as a visiting academic research fellow.

The American Antiquarian Society offers both short-term and long-term visiting research fellowships, tenable for periods of one to twelve months during the period June 1, 2020 to May 31, 2021. The short-term fellowship is available for scholars holding the Ph.D. and for doctoral candidates engaged in dissertation research. The long-term fellowship is for those who have already completed their formal professional training. The application deadline for both the short-term and long-term research fellowships is January 15, 2020.

The Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship provides a scholar who is within three years of receiving a Ph.D. twelve months in residence to add to and revise the dissertation for publication. The application deadline for the Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship is October 15, 2019.


Short-term research fellowships are tenable for periods of one to two months' residence at the AAS, with a monthly stipend of $1,850. Long-term fellowships, supported by funding from the National Endowment for the Humanities, support periods of four to twelve months' residence at the AAS. The stipend for the Hench Fellowship is $35,000.

End: October 15, 2019 or January 15, 2020
