The Program in Early American Economy and Society at the Library Company of Philadelphia will award long-term dissertation-level and post-doctoral fellowships for September 1, 2005 - May 31, 2006. The dissertation-level fellowship carries a stipend of $17,500 for the full year or two half-year fellowships of $8,750 each. The post-doctoral fellowship carries a stipend of $40,000 for the full year or two half-year fellowships of $20,000 each.
