Call for Applications: Linda Hall Library, 2021-22 Virtual Fellowships
The Linda Hall Library is now accepting applications for its 2021-22 fellowship program. These fellowships provide graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and independent scholars in the history of science and related STS fields with financial support to explore the Library’s outstanding science and engineering collections.
The Linda Hall Library holds over half a million monograph volumes and more than 48,000 journal titles documenting the history of science and technology from the 15th century to the present. Its collections are exceptionally strong in the engineering disciplines, chemistry, and physics. The Library also boasts extensive resources related to natural history, astronomy, environmental and earth sciences, aeronautics, life sciences, infrastructure studies, mathematics, and the history of the book.
Due to the public health risks associated with the coronavirus pandemic, all Linda Hall Library fellowships during the 2021-22 academic year will be virtual. Instead of traveling to Kansas City, virtual fellows will conduct research from off-site using digitized resources in the Library’s collections. These virtual fellowships reflect the Library’s ongoing efforts to expand the accessibility of its holdings while protecting the safety of both patrons and staff.
Although they will be working off-site, virtual fellows will be active members of the Linda Hall Library’s social and intellectual community. Each fellow will receive:
Fellowship funding is offered at a rate of $3,000 per month for doctoral students and $4,200 per month for postdoctoral researchers.
The Linda Hall Library has been a long-time sponsor of the HSS Women’s Caucus, and we encourage its members to apply for research support. Please share this information with graduate students, colleagues, or anyone else who might be interested in the Library’s virtual fellowships.
All application materials are due no later than January 15, 2021. For further information, visit https://www.lindahall.org/fellowships/ or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
