The Hittner Research Fellowship at the Rhode Island Historical Society

The Rhode Island Historical Society is excited to offer the inaugural Hittner Research Fellowship in Rhode Island History to support scholarly research in its library and museum collections. The Hittner Fellowship will be awarded annually, and in 2023 will provide a stipend of $2,500 to support 2–4 weeks of resident research in the collections.

The RIHS welcomes applications from all researchers including but not limited to graduate students, public historians, academic scholars, and independent researchers. At the conclusion of their research visit, the Hittner Fellow will be invited to present their work and findings to the RIHS community in some public forum (in-person or virtual).

Applications are due by Monday, December 4, 2023, and notifications will be sent via email by Friday, January 12, 2024.
