The KHS scholarly research fellowship program encourages and promotes advanced study and research in KHS collections on all aspects of Kentucky-related local, regional, national, and transnational history. Fellowships support visits to KHS within one year of the award and are designed to assist researchers with travel and living expenses while using the KHS research collections. Applications are judged on the merits of the proposed research and the extent to which the judges believe that research can be advanced through use of collections at KHS.
