Fellowships of $26,000 to USA PhD candidates, researchers, and post-doctoral scholars to conduct humanities research projects at an institution in New York City. Applicants from underserved and underrepresented communities are encouraged to apply. Research projects may fall into the academic fields of the humanities and history.
The New York Public Library is pleased to offer the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellowship Program to support advanced research at the Center for Research in the Humanities, located in the Library’s flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Fellowships are open to Ph.D. candidates, post-Doctoral scholars, and independent researchers studying the humanities and the history, literature, and culture of peoples represented throughout the collections housed at the Schwarzman Building. Projects requiring access to original materials including special collections, photography, prints, and maps will be given preference, but all worthy projects in history and the humanities will be considered. Applicants working in the visual, auditory/performing, and literary arts are also welcome to apply. Projects focused on science, technology, psychology, public policy, education, and other areas are eligible, but only if the proposed project is centered on typically humanities-related methodologies.
It is the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Foundation and the Library’s intention for the Fellowship Program to include support for under-resourced and underrepresented communities in the humanities.
Fellows will have sustained access to world-class collections and digital resources in quiet, dedicated study rooms within the Library’s Center for Research in the Humanities and access to the Library’s expert staff for consultation or guidance. The Library will provide an orientation to collections and services as well as opportunities to connect with NYPL's broader scholarly community for engagement with peers and the public.
