The 24-month fellowship is intended for a recent Ph.D., a professor at any level seeking sabbatical support for a research project, or an independent scholar working on a project. The caliber of the project, and evidence that the project will be completed in a timely manner, are the two most important criteria for selection. Applicants’ research must pertain to topics on the American Revolution and Founding Era (1750-1800). The successful applicant will receive an appointment as a Research Associate at the McNeil Center. A stipend amount of $50,000 per year for two years will be awarded to all successful applicants.
