- For Members
The Boston Athenæum offers short-term fellowships to support the use of Athenæum collections for research, publication, curriculum and program development, or other creative projects. Each fellowship pays a stipend for a residency of twenty days (four weeks) and includes a year’s membership to the Boston Athenæum. Scholars, graduate students, independent scholars, teaching faculty, and professionals in the humanities as well as teachers and librarians in secondary public, private, and parochial schools are eligible. Applicants must be U.S. citizens or foreign nationals holding the appropriate U.S. government documents.
Applicants need not send multiple submissions for different fellowships. Applicants must submit a curriculum vitae and proposal listing specific materials from the Boston Athenæum's collections. Graduate students must also include a letter of recommendation from their faculty advisor.
