New NEH-Hagley Fellowship Opportunity Announced

The NEH-Hagley Postdoctoral Fellowship on Business, Culture, and Society will support residencies at the Hagley’s Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society by scholars who have received their doctoral degrees by the application deadline. In accordance with NEH requirements, these postdoctoral fellowships are restricted to United States citizens or to foreign nationals who have been living in the United States for at least three years.
     Two postdoctoral fellowships are available, one of four months and one of eight months. The eight-month fellowship must be taken during the September through May academic year. The fellowships provide a monthly stipend of $4,200. Fellows receive complimentary lodging in the scholar’s housing on Hagley’s property for the duration of their residency, as well as office space and the full privileges of visiting scholars, including special access to Hagley’s research collections. They are expected to be in regular and continuous residence and to participate in the Center’s scholarly programs. They must devote full time to their study and may not accept teaching assignments or undertake any other major activities during their residency. Fellows may hold other major fellowships or grants during fellowship tenure, in addition to sabbaticals and supplemental grants from their own institutions, but only those that do not interfere with their residency at Hagley. Other NEH-funded grants may be held serially, but not concurrently.
     Applications are due December 1 and should be sent as a .pdf file. All application materials, including recommendation letters, should be sent to Carol Lockman, clockman@Hagley.org, and must be received by the deadline for the application to be considered by the selection committee. Questions regarding this fellowship may be sent to Carol Lockman as well.
