Women’s History Institute Summer Research Fellowship: Call for Applications

The Women’s History Institute of Historic Hudson Valley is pleased to offer Summer Research Fellowships to support college and graduate students engaged in scholarly research connected to the women who shaped the culture and chronicle of the Hudson River Valley.

This opportunity offers privileged and sustained engagement with the HHV Library and Archives, as well as a $3,000 stipend to offset expenses incurred during the research period.  Research fellows are expected to produce a final report on their findings, which will become part of HHV’s permanent collection.

Applications are invited for on-site research to be conducted for a minimum of 6 weeks between June 1, 2019 – October 1, 2019.

I had a wonderful summer at Historic Hudson Valley. The library and collections staff was knowledgeable and helpful, and the experience was rounded out by the ability to visit the HHV historic sites and to immerse myself in the culturally rich area surrounding the facility.
