Huntington Fellowships
Eligibility:  PhD or equivalent; or doctoral candidate at the dissertation stage.
Tenure of fellowship:  One to five months.
Amount of award:  $2,500 per month.
NOTE:  The majority of “Huntington Fellowships” will be awarded to scholars working in the general holdings of the Library; however, we do offer a number of specialized fellowships:

  • Francis Bacon Foundation Fellowships in Renaissance England
  • Reese Fellowship in American Bibliography and the History of the Book in the Americas
  • Trent R. Dames Civil Engineering History Fellowship
  • Christopher Isherwood Foundation Fellowships
  • Francis J. Weber Research Fellowship in Roman Catholic History

Applying for one of the specialized fellowships does not disqualify you from being considered for a “Huntington Fellowship.”
