The New-York Historical Society offers several long-and short-term fellowships during the academic year. Please visit nyhistory.org/library/fellowships to apply through Interfolio, and for instructions and application checklists for each fellowship.

2022-23 Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Gender and LGBTQ+ History Fellow at the Center for Women’s History

Hired for a two-year term, the Andrew W. Mellon Gender and LGBTQ+ History Fellow works as a public historian for the New-York Historical Society’s Center for Women’s History. The ideal candidate will have a strong scholarly background in LGBTQ+ and gender history, and have an interest in public history. The Gender and LGBTQ+ History Fellow will strengthen the interpretive and pedagogical aspects of LGBTQ+ programming, expanding interdisciplinary efforts to encompass the intersection of women's history with gender studies and LGBTQ+ history, as the New-York Historical Society prepares to engage fully with the new LGBTQ+ Museum. Applicants for the Mellon Gender and LGBTQ+ History Fellowship must have the Ph.D. in hand by the time of appointment. This fellowship will last from January 4, 2022, through December 31, 2023, and will receive a stipend of $70,000 per year, with benefits.

Application deadline: November 15, 2021

 

2022-23 Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Predoctoral Awards in Women’s History

The two recipients of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Predoctoral Awards in Women’s History should have a strong interest in women’s and public history and the applications of these fields outside the academy. Functioning as research associates and providing programmatic support for N-YHS’s Center for Women’s History, pre-doctoral awardees will assist in the development of content for the Women's History exhibitions, associated educational curriculum, and on-site experiences for students, scholars, and visitors. They must be currently enrolled students in good standing in a relevant Ph.D. program in the humanities. The Predoctoral Awardees, whose work at N-YHS may not necessarily directly correspond with their dissertation research, will be in residence part time at the New-York Historical Society for one academic year, between September 6, 2022, and August 31, 2023, and will receive a stipend of $20,000 per year. This position is not full time and will not receive full benefits.

Application deadline: January 7, 2022
