Apply by January 15, 2019, to the MHS-NEH Long-Term Fellowship Program. The Massachusetts Historical Society in Boston will offer at least two MHS-NEH Long-term Fellowships for the academic year 2019-2020. These fellowships are made possible by an award from the National Endowment for the Humanities, an independent federal agency. The stipend, governed by an NEH formula, will be $4,200 per month for a minimum of four months and a maximum of twelve months. The Society will supplement each stipend with a monthly allowance of $562.50 for housing and professional expenses. NEH guidelines require applicants to have completed their training for the terminal degree in their field (ordinarily the Ph.D.) by the application deadline.
