Applications are due by October 15, 2013 for the 2014-15 Hench Post-Dissertation Fellowship at the American Antiquarian Society, an independent research library of American history, literature, and culture through 1876. Scholars who are no more than three years beyond receipt of the doctorate are eligible to apply for this 12-month residential fellowship.
The purpose of the post-dissertation fellowship is to provide the recipient with time and resources to extend research and/or to revise the dissertation for publication. Any topic relevant to the Society's library collections and programmatic scope--that is, American history, literature, and culture through 1876--is eligible.
Applicants may come from such fields as history, literature, American studies, political science, art history, music history, and others relating to America in the period of the Society's coverage. The Society welcomes applications from those who have advance book contracts, as well as those who have not yet made contact with a publisher. The twelve-month stipend for this fellowship is $35,000, with a $4000 supplement for health insurance.
Applications can be submitted via the AAS website, at www.americanantiquarian.org.
