The Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies will award Residency Research Fellowships of $5,000 per term (up to two terms per applicant) to support historical research in the Ann Arbor area for the 2022-23 academic year. This fellowship program has been funded by a generous gift from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.
The institute invites applications from PhDs of all ranks who hold a faculty or other permanent research position at an outside accredited university, college, or research organization (faculty from UM-Flint and UM-Dearborn are encouraged to apply).
These grants are supplementary and presume scholars are on leave from their home institution. Applicants are expected to be in residence or within commuting distance for the duration of their fellowship.
Residency Research Fellows will join the institute’s intellectual community and are expected to participate in institute programs. The fellowship includes University of Michigan library privileges and workspace in the U-M History Department.
The application deadline is February 25, 2022. See application (below) for additional details and eligibility.
