The Upton Foundation Fellowships support scholarly research on American history prior to 1900. Upton Fellowships provide a monthly stipend of $4,000 for one to five months’ residence at the Library. These are post-doctoral fellowships requiring a Ph.D. or equivalent qualifications. Applications must be received by January 15 for research to be undertaken in that calendar year.
The William L. 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.
All applications must include the following items:
• Application form (pdf)
• Curriculum vitae of no more than six pages
• Brief, two-page summary of the project, including the current status of your research. Please identify what Clements Library material you wish to consult
