Massachusetts Historical Society

Long-term Research Fellowships

About

The Massachusetts Historical Society will award at least two long-term MHS-NEH fellowships for the academic year 2024-2025. The stipend, governed by an NEH formula, is $5,000 per month for a minimum of four months and a maximum of 12 months. Applicants must specify the number of months for which they are applying. Tenure must be continuous. Within the constraints of the NEH's guidelines, the Society will supplement each stipend with a housing allowance of up to $500 per month plus an allowance for professional expenses. MHS-NEH fellowships are open to U.S. citizens and to foreign nationals who have lived in the United States for at least three years immediately preceding the application deadline.

New NEH guidelines require prospective fellows to have completed their training for the terminal degree in their field (ordinarily the Ph.D.) by the application deadline. NEH-sponsored fellowships are not available to graduate students. The awards committee will pay special attention both to the quality of proposed projects and to their relationship to the Society's collections. It will give preference to candidates who have not held a long-term grant during the three years prior to the proposed fellowship term.
