The Seth and Mary Edith Hinshaw Fellowship provides up to $2,000 for research using the resources of the Quaker Archives at Guilford College to study an aspect of southern Quaker history, including topics intersecting with Quaker studies. The fellowship is sponsored by the North Carolina Friends Historical Society to encourage research and use of the Quaker Archives. The funds most commonly support travel, room, and board expenses which are reimbursed upon the completion of the scheduled visit. The recipient may be asked to present his/her research and findings at the Society’s annual meeting. We invite applications from a range of backgrounds: dissertation, post-doctoral, and non-academic. We anticipate that the most competitive applications will involve innovative projects of the many concerns to which Friends have turned their attention, including literature, women's issues, family history, and race relations, as well as religious doctrine and controversies.
