Research Fellowships at the Massachusetts Historical Society

Job Type: Fellowship


The Massachusetts Historical Society will offer more than forty research fellowships for the academic year 2020-2021, ranging from short-term support to long-term residency. The MHS collections primarily consist of manuscripts, as well as books, pamphlets, maps, newspapers, graphics, photographs, works of art, and historical artifacts.

In addition to receiving funding, MHS Research Fellows become part of a scholarly community that includes other current fellows, MHS staff, Boston-area scholars, and former fellows. They may participate in our Brown Bag Lunch Series, present their own research, attend seminars, and join MHS staff and other fellows for weekly collegial lunches.
