Established in honor of the Library’s second Director, the Peckham Fellowship supports research on American history between 1764 and 1783. The fellowship provides $10,000 for a project involving a residence of two months or more at the Library. This is a post-doctoral fellowship requiring a Ph.D. or equivalent qualifications. Applications must be received by January 15 for research to be undertaken in that calendar year.
The Clements Library research fellowships exist to help scholars gain access to the Library’s rich array of primary sources on early American history. On almost any aspect of the American experience from 1492 through 1900, the Clements holdings—books, manuscripts, pamphlets, maps, prints and views, newspapers, photographs, ephemera—are among the best in the world. The potential for rewarding research at the Clements—on military history, gender and ethnicity, religion, the American Revolution, culinary history, Native Americans, politics and government, slavery and antislavery, the Civil War, travel and exploration—is remarkably strong. For any serious student of America’s early heritage, the Clements Library is an attractive destination indeed.
