The AAS is calling for applications for visiting fellowships for historical research by creative and performing artists, writers, film makers, journalists, and other persons whose goals are to produce imaginative, non-formulaic works dealing with pre-twentieth-century American history. Successful applicants are those whose work is for the general public rather than for academic or educational audiences. The Society’s goal in sponsoring this program is to multiply and improve the ways in which an understanding of history is communicated to the American people. Fellowship projects can include, but are not limited to:

  • Costume and/or set designs
  • Screenplays
  • Documentary films
  • Historical novels
  • Illustrations and other graphic arts
  • Sculpture
  • Paintings
  • Radio broadcasts

Fellowships last for four weeks and offer a stipend of $1,350 (for fellows residing at the Society) or $1,850 (for fellows residing off campus). Applications are due October 5, 2013. For more information, see the link below:
