Research Fellowships@Filson Historical Society
Louisville, Kentucky, US
|Scholarship / Financial aid: support for travel and lodging|
Deadline: February 15th 2013
Open to: graduate students
The Filson fellowships and internships encourage the scholarly use of our nationally significant collections by providing support for travel and lodging. Internships provide practical experience in collections management and research for graduate students. Fellows as well as interns are expected to be in continuous residence at The Filson. Application deadlines for all fellowships and internships are October 15th and February 15th each year (or the Monday following the 15th if it falls on a Saturday or Sunday). Applications are reviewed two times a year.
The Society's collections are especially strong for the frontier, antebellum, and Civil War eras of Kentucky history. The fellowships are designed to encourage research in all aspects of the history of Kentucky and the regions of the Ohio Valley and the Upper South. Applicants should indicate how The Filson's collections are relevant to their research topics and will have the opportunity to present the results of their research to scholars and the general public as appropriate. The Filson anticipates that fellows will publicize the results of their research in Ohio Valley History, a peer-reviewed journal published jointly by The Filson, the Cincinnati Museum Center, and the University of Cincinnati.
The Filson Historical Society, Louisville, Kentucky, invites applications for fellowships to support research in The Filson's collections, and internships. Applications must be postmarked by February 15, 2013.
Questions regarding the fellowship and internship program should be directed to Dr. A. Glenn Crothers, Director of Research at The Filson: firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
