The Consortium offers short-term Research Fellowships, nine-month Dissertation Writing Fellowships and a nine-month NEH Postdoctoral Fellowship for scholars in the history of science, technology or medicine who would like to use collections at two or more institutions in the Consortium. Dissertation and Postdoctoral Fellows use offices in the Consortium’s facility in Center City Philadelphia and have ready access to events and activities throughout Philadelphia’s vibrant academic and cultural communities.
Research Fellows will be awarded a stipend of $600 for use of each collection, $350 if the collection is less than 100 miles from another collection for which a stipend has already been awarded. Candidates who live 100 or more miles from the collections they will use will receive some preference. Fellows typically receive between $950 and $3,000 depending on number and locations of collections used.
Dissertation Writing Fellows receive a stipend of $23,000. Fellows are expected to spend the academic year at the Consortium facilities in Philadelphia and to participate in our events. Dissertation fellowships are available to Ph.D. candidates who are U.S. citizens, permanent residents or students at U.S. institutions.
The Consortium’s NEH Postdoctoral Fellow receives a stipend of $37,800. Postdoctoral Fellows will be expected to spend the academic year at the Consortium facilities in Philadelphia and to participate in our events. The Consortium’s NEH Postdoctoral Fellowship is available to scholars who are US citizens or permanent residents.
