New America Fellows Program
New America’s Fellows Program invests in thinkers—academics, journalists, independent scholars, and public policy analysts—who offer inventive perspectives on the major challenges facing our society. Fellows advance ideas through research, reporting, analysis, and storytelling. We look for projects that are original and ambitious, with viable plans for their implementation. There is no set template for a successful fellowship project. Some projects focus on furthering a new public policy idea through either a domestic or international lens, while others illuminate longstanding dilemmas of American life from new angles.
Harvard University - Houghton Library - Visiting Fellowships
Houghton Library is pleased to offer short-term visiting fellowships to assist scholars with the cost of travel and accommodation to come and pursue their research at the library. The collections of Houghton Library touch upon almost every aspect of the human record, particularly the history and culture of Europe and North America, and include special concentrations in the history of printing and of theater. Materials held here range from medieval manuscripts and early printed books to the working papers of living writers. Fellows will also have access to collections in Widener Library as well as to other libraries at the University.

National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) - Public Scholar Program
The Public Scholar program supports well-researched books in the humanities intended to reach a broad readership. Such scholarship might present a narrative history, tell the stories of important individuals, analyze significant texts, provide a synthesis of ideas, revive interest in a neglected subject, or examine the latest thinking on a topic. The challenge is to make sense of a significant topic in a way that will appeal to general readers.
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) - UCLA Center for Seventeenth- & Eighteenth-Century Studies - Kanner Fellowship in British Studies
This three-month fellowship, established through the generosity of Penny Kanner, supports research at the Clark Library in any area pertaining to British history and culture. The Center provides a forum for the discussion of central issues in the field of seventeenth- and eighteenth-century studies. It organizes academic programs, bringing together scholars from the region, the nation, and the world, with the goal of encouraging research from as early as the time of Lope de Vega and William Shakespeare to the defeat of Napoléon and the death of Lord Byron.
