Up to $5K available to history researchers

The Minnesota Historical Society announces the third round of Gale Family Library Legacy Research Fellowships.

Applications may be submitted between now and Oct. 1 with Legacy Fellowship research to begin Jan. 1, 2016.

Awards of $1,000 or $5,000 are available to successful applicants.

The competitive fellowship is designed to support research on Minnesota history that is conducted at the Gale Family Library at the Minnesota History Center. Fellows will work at the library and interact with MNHS staff.

The fellowship is open to any post-college Minnesota scholar, public historian, journalist, writer, filmmaker or humanist who is engaged in Minnesota-related scholarship that draws on Gale Family Library resources and adds to the body of knowledge and interpretation of pre- and post-statehood history. Independent scholars and scholars — including graduate students — who are not eligible for funding through employment at academic institutions are especially encouraged to apply.

Among the criteria for a successful application is the project’s potential to educate and engage the public and scholarly audiences about Minnesota history and cultural heritage.

For more information, including application instructions, visit the Legacy Research Fellowships website.
