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. Awards typically range from $400 (one week of research) to $1,600 (four weeks of research). Applicants from outside the U.S. are also encouraged to apply. Application materials for the Spring 2016 cycle are due no later than March 1, 2016.
