Deadline Approaching: PEAES Fellowships

The Library Company of Philadelphia’s Program in Early American Economy and Society (PEAES) sponsors three types of fellowship awards; the application period for two of these ends in March for 2014-2015 fellowships. These research fellowships are designed to promote scholarship in early American economy and society, broadly defined, from its colonial beginnings to the 1850s. Possible research topics include Atlantic and global connections of the American economy; its commerce, business, technology, manufacturing, agriculture, internal development, or political economy; the history of race and the economy, capitalism, households, or gendered economies. All fellows are expected to be resident researchers in Philadelphia for the duration of awards.
     Applicants for the dissertation fellowships may submit proposals based not only on the extensive collections at the Library Company, but also on the printed and manuscript materials of other institutions in the Philadelphia area. Short-term fellows should spend a continuous month of research in the collections of the Library Company. Fellowships will be awarded as follows:
One dissertation research fellowship, carrying a stipend of $20,000, tenable for nine consecutive months of residency from September 1, 2014 to May 31, 2015; or it may be divided between two scholars, for the periods September 1, 2014 to January 15, 2015, or January 15 to May 31, 2015.
Four one-month fellowships will also be awarded, carrying stipends of $2,000 each and tenable for one month of continuous residence and research at the Library Company between June 1, 2014 and May 31, 2015. 
The deadline for receipt of all materials for both fellowships is March 1, 2014. Please consult the PEAES Fellowship page for information about application requirements and procedures. Questions should be directed to Cathy Matson, Program Director, at cmatson@udel.edu.
