The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) research fellowship program is committed to providing funding for scholars whose research requires the use of KHS’s rich collections. The program supports senior and emerging scholars, including doctoral students, through one-to-four week fellowships ($400 for each week of fellowship residency).
