New Fellowship in Business History Announced

The Hagley Museum and Library and the Miller Center at the University of Virginia announce a Miller Center/Hagley Library Dissertation Fellowship in Business and Politics. The fellowship, which will commence with the 2015-2016 academic year, supports the completion of dissertations that address the connections between business and politics. The Miller Center/Hagley fellow is expected to be in residence at Hagley for the academic year. While in residence, the fellow will receive an office, stack access, interlibrary loan privileges, Internet access, the opportunity to present a paper in Hagley’s seminar series, and use of Hagley’s discounted scholar’s accommodations. Through the Miller Center, the fellow will be paired with a mentor, a senior scholar in the fellow’s field who will provide critical guidance during his/her fellowship year. The fellowship carries a stipend of $24,000.
     Roger Horowitz, director of the Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society at Hagley, commented, “Hagley’s business records are essential for understanding the relationships between business and public policy, and have been a major resource for scholarship in this area for decades. . . . we are excited to unite Hagley’s scholarly resources with the training and expertise provided by the Miller Center.”
     For application procedures, please see the fellowship site at the Miller Center. The application process will open in November 2014 and close on February 2, 2015
