The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation is accepting Application for Predoctoral Awards.


The two recipients of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Predoctoral Awards in Women’s History should have a strong interest in women’s and public history and the applications of these fields outside the academy. Functioning as research associates and providing programmatic support for N-YHS’s Center for Women’s History, pre-doctoral awardees will assist in the development of content for the Women's History exhibitions, associated educational curriculum, and on-site experiences for students, scholars, and visitors. They must be currently enrolled students in good standing in a relevant Ph.D. program in the humanities. The Predoctoral Awardees, whose work at N-YHS may not directly correspond with their dissertation research, will be in residence part time at the New-York Historical Society for one academic year, between September 8, 2021, and August 26, 2022, and will receive a stipend of $20,000 per year. This position is not full time and will not receive full benefits.


Applicants must be enrolled in a relevant PhD program in the humanities with a strong interest in the fields of women's and public history. Application Instructions Application requirements include:

  • A two- to three-page statement that outlines the applicant’s scholarly goals and proposes a potential public history project focused around the field of women’s history;
  • A curriculum vitae;
  • An unofficial graduate school transcript;
  • A short writing sample of no more than 3,000 words or ten pages;
  • Three letters of recommendation.

The application deadline is January 15, 2021, at 11:59pm (EST).
