The Georgia Historical Society will be accepting applications for Vincent J. Dooley Distinguished Research Fellowships until January 8, 2021. These fellowships are intended to assist scholars in conducting on-site research specifically in the GHS Research Center collections, including manuscripts, photographs, architectural drawings, rare and non-rare books, as well as maps, portraits, and artifacts.
Research Fellowships will support scholars from outside the Savannah area engaged in graduate-level, post-doctoral, and independent research. Up to $5,000 will be awarded each cycle with one to five Research Fellows in each award cycle. The research is expected to lead to a major piece of scholarly work such as: a dissertation, a book, an article in a refereed scholarly journal, a chapter in an edited collection, or an academic paper presented at a scholarly conference.
