Massachusetts Historical Society NEH Long-Term Fellowship

The Massachusetts Historical Society

Job Type: Fellowship

Application Deadline: January 15, 2018


The Massachusetts Historical Society will award at least two long-term MHS-NEH fellowships for the academic year 2018-2019. The stipend, governed by an NEH formula, is $4,200 per month in 2017 for a minimum of four months and a maximum of 12 months. Applicants must specify the number of months for which they are applying. Tenure must be continuous. Within the constraints of the NEH’s guidelines, the Society will supplement each stipend with a housing allowance of up to $500 per month plus an allowance for professional expenses. MHS-NEH fellowships are open to U.S. citizens and to foreign nationals who have lived in the United States for at least three years immediately preceding the application deadline.
New NEH guidelines require prospective fellows to have completed their training for the terminal degree in their field (ordinarily the Ph.D.) by the application deadline. NEH-sponsored fellowships are not available to graduate students. The awards committee will pay special attention both to the quality of proposed projects and to their relationship to the Society’s collections. It will give preference to candidates who have not held a long-term grant during the three years prior to the proposed fellowship term.  The deadline for MHS-NEH applications is January 15, 2018.
