Hagley Museum and Library Grants and Fellowships to Study the History of Business, Technology and Society

The Hagley Museum and Library offers Research Fellowships, Exploratory Research Grants and Dissertation Fellowships to support research on the history of American enterprise and the interaction between business and the cultural, social, and political dimensions of U.S. society from the late 18th century to the present.

  • Research fellowships are for a maximum of eight weeks and are intended to support serious scholarly work that makes use of Hagley’s research collections and expands on prior scholarship. Stipends are $400/week for recipients who live more than 50 miles from Hagley and $200/week for those who live within 50 miles.
  • Exploratory research grants support one-week visits by scholars who believe that their project will benefit from Hagley research collections, but need the opportunity to explore them on-site to determine if a fellowship application is warranted. Priority will be given to junior scholars with innovative projects that seek to expand on existing scholarship. Applicants should reside more than 50 miles from Hagley, and the stipend is $400.
  • Dissertation fellowships are designed for graduate students who have completed all course work for the doctoral degree and are conducting research on their dissertation. The fellowship lasts for four months and provides $6,500, free housing on Hagley’s grounds, use of a computer, mail and internet access, and an office.

Research fellowships and exploratory research grant applications are due March 31, June 30 and October 31 annually. Dissertation fellowship applications are due November 15 annually. For more information, see the link below:
