The New-York Historical Society offers several long- and short-term fellowships during the academic year; these include:

  • Andrew W. Mellon Fellowships in Women’s History
  • The Bernard and Irene Schwartz Fellowships, offered jointly with Eugene Lang College
  • The New School for Liberal Arts
  • The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellowship
  • Robert David Lion Gardiner Foundation – Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Fellowship
  • The National Endowment for the Humanities Fellowship
  • Short-Term Fellowships

Fellowships are open to scholars at various times during their academic careers. Each fellowship awards a specific non-negotiable taxable stipend to the successful candidate, plus benefits. The stipend listed in each fellowship synopsis is before taxes and does not include living expenses. Please be advised that fellows are financially responsible for their living arrangements. Once awarded a fellowship, the Society would be happy to provide advice concerning living and working in New York.

The Society holds a collection of books, manuscripts, graphic materials, decorative objects, historical artifacts, and works of art. The Society provides a rich environment for research and learning. Fellows are encouraged to explore the collections and to take advantage of the full scope of the library and museum’s resources and to share their research during their tenure through informal talks and blog posts. Educational outreach and public programs further support New-York Historical’s intellectual mission to explore the richly layered political, cultural, and social history of New York and the nation, as well as the making and the meaning of history.
