College Fellowships in American History

The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History provides annual short-term research fellowships in the amount of $3000 each to undergraduate students majoring or minoring in History, American Studies, Africana, Political Science, or related fields. International college students are eligible to apply.

Launched in 2022, this program enables young historians to do research primarily at the Gilder Lehrman Collection—a repository containing more than eighty thousand items documenting the political, social, and economic history of the United States—and also at other archives in New York City.
