American Antiquarian Society
The American Antiquarian Society (AAS), a national research library, welcomes applications from scholars on topics related to early American history and culture. The fellowships are designed to enable academic and independent scholars and advanced graduate students to spend an uninterrupted block of time conducting research in the AAS library. AAS collections encompass approximately four million books, pamphlets, broadsides, newspapers, periodicals, manuscripts, children’s literature, sheet music, prints, maps, photographs, ephemera, and other graphic arts materials. Materials come from what are now the United States, portions of Canada, and the Caribbean, and date from the introduction of the printing press in America in 1640 through 1900. A hallmark of AAS fellowships is the welcoming environment and the assistance of a staff widely known for its knowledge and helpfulness. The resulting collegial atmosphere fosters the sharing of ideas among fellows from diverse backgrounds and experiences. Scholars working on Indigenous and African American topics are encouraged to apply.
