The Filson Historical Society, Louisville, Kentucky, invites applications for fellowships to support research in The Filson’s collections, and internships.

While The Filson is pleased to fund historical research into any of our collections, we are particularly interested in funding projects that would be appropriate for publication in the Ohio Valley History, a peer-reviewed journal, which is accessible through Project Muse and published jointly by The Filson, the Cincinnati Museum Center and the University of Cincinnati.


Questions about the fellowship and internship programs should be directed to Dr. LeeAnn Whites, Director of Research at The Filson:


Founded on May 15, 1884, the mission of The Filson Historical Society is to collect, preserve and tell the significant stories of Kentucky and the Ohio Valley history and culture. The Filson is headquartered in the Ferguson Mansion in Old Louisville and houses a library, a museum, and a special collections department. The Filson’s fellowship and internship program is made possible in part by the Thomas Walker Bullitt Perpetual Trust.
