Founded in 1804, the New-York Historical Society and the Patricia D. Klingenstein Library provide a rich environment for research and learning. Fellows are encouraged to explore the collections and to take advantage of the full scope of the Library and Museum’s resources and to share their research during their tenure through informal talks and blog posts. Educational outreach and public programs further support New-York Historical’s intellectual mission to explore the richly layered political, cultural, and social history of New York and the nation, as well as the making and the meaning of history.

Fellowships at the New-York Historical Society are made possible through the generous endowments of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation, and Helen and Robert Appel. Major support for fellowships is provided by Bernard L. Schwartz and the Lehrman Institute. All fellows receive research stipends while in residency.

Short term fellowships are made possible by support from the Society of Colonial Wars, Helen and Robert Appel, Sid Lapidus, Pam Schafler, Society of Daughters of Holland Dames, Richard Brown and Mary Jo Otsea, Patricia D. Klingenstein, Causeries du Lundi, the Peck Stacpoole Foundation, and the Pine Tree Foundation of New York.
