Faculty Fellowships

The Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies will award up to two Faculty Fellowships for the 2024-25 academic year. These fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. They are designed to facilitate faculty research while engaging recipients more directly in institute programs. This fellowship program has been funded by a generous gift from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg. 

The Faculty Fellowship includes a release from teaching two Department of History courses, a $2,500 research grant, and the opportunity to organize and lead a one-day research workshop. 

Recipients are expected to actively participate in institute events and may be asked to participate in Friday Workshop programs as commentators and/or chairs. Eisenberg fellows have the opportunity to workshop an article, chapter, or other project with the institute community during their fellowship term.

The application deadline is February 2, 2024. See application (below) for additional details and eligibility. Submit application components via email (
