Research Fellows Alumni

The MHS offers more than forty fellowships each year including about twenty in association with other institutions. Past recipients uniquely understand the importance of fellowships to graduate students researching dissertations, faculty exploring book ideas, and scholars and curators undertaking independent or professional projects. Therefore, research fellow alumni are invited to give back by supporting the annual Louis Leonard Tucker Alumni Fellowship.
