The Program in Early American Economy & Society (PEAES) at the Library Company of Philadelphia will be awarding dissertation and short-term research fellowships that support scholarship in early American economy and society, broadly defined, from its colonial beginnings to the 1850s. The fellowships provide scholars with the opportunity to investigate such topics as Atlantic and global connections of the American economy; its commerce, finance, business, technology, manufacturing, agriculture, internal development, or political economy; the history of race and the economy, capitalism, households, or gendered economies.  Fellows must reside in the Philadelphia area for the duration of the fellowship.

PEAES Dissertation Fellowships carry a stipend of $25,000 for the academic year (September 1, 2023, to May 31, 2024) or $12,500 for the fall or spring semester (September 1, 2023 to January 15, 2024 or January 15 to May 31, 2024).
