Introducing the 2023–24 Huntington Fellows
This year, The Huntington has awarded long-term research fellowships to 12 individuals who will be in residence for the full academic year and 126 short-term fellowships (for between one and five months), as well as six travel grants for study in the United Kingdom, Spain, and France. These fellowships were selected through a competitive, peer-review process that provides $1.4 million in awards.
The Huntington Library awards over 150 research fellowships annually. Applicants for long-term (yearlong) fellowships must have completed all requirements for the Ph.D. at the time of application. Short-term fellowships (five months or less) and travel grants/exchange fellowships (for study abroad) are open to both doctoral candidates who have advanced to candidacy (ABD) at the time of the application deadline and to faculty members and other postdoctoral scholars.
Meet the current long-term fellows and learn about their research projects at The Huntington.
