Linda Hall Library Fellowships

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

We are excited to announce that, beginning today, the Linda Hall Library is accepting applications for its 2019/20 fellowship program. These fellowships fund research stays in Kansas City from one week to four months for graduate students, postdoctoral researchers, and independent scholars in the history of science and related STS fields.

The Linda Hall Library offers outstanding primary sources that document science, technology, and the engineering disciplines from the 15th century to the present, as well as co-located secondary sources. Its collections are exceptionally strong in the engineering disciplines, chemistry, and physics, but it also has impressive holdings in natural history, astronomy, environmental and earth sciences, aeronautics, life sciences, infrastructure studies, and mathematics.

Linda Hall Library research fellows participate in a vibrant intellectual community alongside scholars from nearby libraries and universities, including the University of Missouri-Kansas City (UMKC), the University of Kansas (KU), and the Clendening History of Medicine Library at the KU Medical Center. Fellows are also welcome to attend the Library’s lectures and public programs featuring scholars from around the world.

Please share this information with graduate students, colleagues, or anyone else who might be interested in the Linda Hall Library’s fellowship program. All application materials are due no later than January 18, 2019. For further information, please visit https://www.lindahall.org/fellowships/ or e-mail fellowships@lindahall.org.
