Applications from published writers and established scholars are welcome. Dissertation projects will not be considered. Applicants should have a significant book-length project currently in progress. The project should address the history and/or legacy – broadly defined – of the American Revolution and the nation’s founding ideas. It might focus on the founding era itself, or on the myriad ways the questions that preoccupied the nation’s founders have shaped America’s later history. The fellowship includes a $45,000 stipend, health benefits, faculty privileges, a book allowance, and a nine-month residency.
