Fellowships - Huntington Library
The Huntington Library awards over 150 research fellowships annually. Recipients of all fellowships are expected to be in continuous residence at The Huntington and to participate in, and make a contribution to, its intellectual life.
The Huntington is a collections-based research institute, which promotes humanities scholarship on the basis of its library holdings and art collections. The Library holds more than eleven million items that span the 11th to 21st centuries.
The Art Collections feature European and American art spanning more than 500 years, with diverse strengths ranging from Renaissance Italian bronzes to British Grand Manner portrait paintings to early American folk art to twentieth-century drawings, prints, and photography.
In addition to reinterpreting the well-known highlights of our collections, thereby connecting them with new and broader audiences, we aim to inspire future generations of scholars and artists by providing greater access to all of our collections.
Long-term fellowship, short-term fellowship, and travel grant applications will be accepted beginning Aug. 31, 2021, with a submission deadline of noon PST on Nov. 15, 2021. The fellowship year begins on July 1, 2022, and ends on June 30, 2023.
Applicants for long-term (year-long) fellowships must have completed all requirements for the PhD at the time of application. Short-term fellowships (of five months or less) and travel grants/exchange fellowships (for study abroad) are open to both doctoral candidates who have advanced to candidacy (ABD) at the time of the application deadline and to faculty members and other postdoctoral scholars
