The New York Public Library is pleased to offer the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellowship Program to support advanced research at the Center for Research in the Humanities, located in the Library’s flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Fellowships are open to Ph.D. candidates, post-Doctoral scholars, and independent researchers studying the humanities and the history, literature, and culture of peoples represented throughout the collections housed at the Schwarzman Building. Projects requiring access to original materials including special collections, photography, prints, and maps will be given preference, but all worthy projects in history and the humanities will be considered. Applicants working in the visual, auditory/performing, and literary arts are also welcome to apply. Projects focused on science, technology, psychology, public policy, education, and other areas are eligible, but only if the proposed project is centered on typically humanities-related methodologies.

Established with the generous support of the Diamonstein-Spielvogel Foundation, the Fellowship Program will support five Diamonstein-Spielvogel Fellows for four concurrent months during the academic year with a stipend of $26,000.

Application deadline: February 14, 2022
