Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellowships in Women’s History: Pre-Doctorate

The two recipients of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Predoctoral Fellowship in Women's History should have a strong interest in the fields of women’s and public history. This unusual part-time fellowship introduces young scholars to work outside the academy in public history and may not directly correspond with their dissertation research. They must be currently enrolled students in good standing in a relevant PhD program in the humanities. The Predoctoral Fellows will be in residence part time at the New-York Historical Society for one academic year, between September 5, 2018 and June 29, 2019, with a stipend of $15,000 per year. This position is not full time and will not receive full benefits.

Application deadline: January 8, 2018
