These awards support nine months of dissertation research or writing in-residence at the McNeil Center in Philadelphia. Any project dealing with the histories and cultures of North America in the Atlantic world before 1850 will be considered. Proposals dependent on the use of Philadelphia-area archives and libraries are particularly welcome.
The McNeil Center plans to award at least eight dissertation fellowships for the 2013-2014 academic year, most with nine-month stipends of $21,000. Fellows receive office space and library, computer, and other privileges at the University. Limited travel funds for research are also available. While no teaching is required for most fellowships, all McNeil Center fellows are expected to be in residence in Philadelphia during the academic year and to participate regularly in the Center’s program of seminars and other activities.
