We are searching for two predoctoral scholars in the history of the Civil War era! The start date is July 1, 2024. This is a one-year fellowship. Fellows have no teaching or administrative responsibilities; they will primarily focus on their dissertation and participate in the Richards Center scholarly community.
We conceive of the Civil War era broadly. We especially welcome projects related to the history of slavery, emancipation, and their legacies and the history of struggles for freedom and democracy in the United States.
The fellowship includes a $40,000 stipend and $3,000 in research funds. For more information on the Richards Center Predoctoral Fellowships, including how to apply, visit https://richardscenter.la.psu.edu/fellowships/postdoctoral-fellows/.
