Graduate Student Research Fellowships

The Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies will award up to six Graduate Student Research Fellowships in the amount of $5,000 each for the 2021-22 academic year. The institute invites applications from University of Michigan graduate students in History and joint-History programs who are entering at least their second year of graduate training. These fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis. They aim to assist outstanding graduate students in pursuing their dissertation research. This fellowship program has been funded by a generous gift from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg. 

Graduate Fellows form a core part of the institute community and are expected to participate regularly in institute events. Graduate Fellows will collaborate in designing/organizing the Friday workshops presented in 2021-22. This provides the fellows greater autonomy in shaping coherent scholarly forums around matters of interest to them. Fellows will convene in April 2021 shortly after the awards have been announced to begin the planning process. Eisenberg fellows have the opportunity to workshop an article, chapter, or other project with the institute community during their fellowship term. 

This application is due February 26, 2021. Link below for additional details (Word and PDF files are available for each application component). Both application components may be submitted via email.
