Residency Research Fellowship

The Eisenberg Institute for Historical Studies will award Residency Research Fellowships of $5,500 per term (up to two terms per applicant) for faculty, researchers, journalists, independent scholars, public historians, and others from outside UM-Ann Arbor (faculty from UM-Flint and UM-Dearborn are encouraged to apply) to support historical research in the Ann Arbor area. This fellowship program has been funded by a generous gift from Kenneth and Frances Aftel Eisenberg.

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.

Please carefully review the eligibility criteria before applying. Applicants are expected to be in residence or within commuting distance for the duration of their fellowship.
