The Brooke Hindle Postdoctoral Fellowship in the History of Technology honors the contribution of Brooke Hindle to the work of the Society for the History of Technology. The Fellowship, made possible thanks to the great generosity of his family, is for $10,000 and may be used for any purpose connected with research or writing in the history of technology for a period of not less than three months during the calendar year following the award.

Applicants must hold a doctorate in the history of technology or a related field. The doctorate can be awarded no more than four years before the application deadline, and no later than nine months after the application deadline. (Applicants who graduated more than four years before the deadline but have extenuating circumstances, such as family commitments, may apply at the discretion of the committee chair.) Other awards may be held in conjunction with the Fellowship.

The proposal must be in a field related to the history of technology. Applicants should be intending either to prepare a dissertation for publication as articles or as a monograph, or to develop a new project based on primary research. Applications must be in English.

Deadline for nominations is 15 April.
