The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) scholarly research fellowship program encourages and promotes research on all aspects of Kentucky history.

Fellowships are designed to assist researchers with travel and living expenses while using the KHS research collections. All applications are peer-reviewed by a panel of leading historians. Awards are based on the significance of the proposed research and on the anticipated time it will require in KHS collections. Awards typically range from $375 (for one week) to $1,500 (for four weeks). These short-term fellowships are intended to support serious scholarly work. They enable individuals to pursue advanced study and research in the collections of KHS.

Fellowship recipients are strongly encouraged to submit an article-length manuscript for possible publication in the Register of the Kentucky Historical Society and are expected to make an informal presentation on their research during their stay and to submit a final narrative report of three to five pages outlining the work accomplished. For more information about the scholarly research fellowships, contact Elizabeth J. Van Allen at (502) 564-1792, ext. 4440.
The deadline for the fall 2012 fellowship is October 15.
