The Huntington Research Division administers one of the largest and most prestigious fellowship programs for the support of scholarship in the humanities in the United States. Every year approximately 200 fellowships are awarded to scholars from all over the world to conduct advanced humanities research using The Huntington’s collections.

Scholars come from around the world every year to conduct advanced humanities research using The Huntington’s collections. Through a rigorous peer-review program, the institution awards fellowships to scholars in the fields of history, literature, art, and the history of science. These scholarly pursuits lead to best-selling books, Pulitzer Prizes, acclaimed documentary films, and many of the history and social studies textbooks that educate the nation’s school children.

Applicants should submit a project description with the description of the project and its significance and a description of the specific Huntington materials to be consulted and an outline of the plan of work for the fellowship period. 

The application deadline is November 15, 2017. For more information, please visit Fellowships at The Huntington and Apply for a Fellowship.
