We invite applications from Ph.D. candidates whose research on important historical questions would benefit from use of Hagley's research collections. Applications should demonstrate superior intellectual quality, present a persuasive methodology for the project, and show that there are significant research materials at Hagley pertinent to the dissertation. Use of Hagley's collections may take place prior to application for the dissertation fellowship. Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to consult with Hagley staff prior to submitting their dossier. This is a residential fellowship with a term of four months. The fellowship provides $6,500, free housing on Hagley's grounds, use of a computer, mail and internet access, and an office.

Preference will be given to applicants with a proven interest in museum work or those planning to pursue a museum career in the field of Medieval Art.

Grants-in-Aid

These grants are intended to support serious scholarly work. They enable individuals to pursue advanced study and research in the collections of the Hagley Museum and Library. They are available to both degree candidates and senior scholars, as well as applicants without advanced degrees. Applications are welcome from scholars and writers working independently as well as college and university teachers, librarians, archivists, museum curators, and scholars from fields other than the humanities. Grant recipients are required to spend their time in residence at Hagley, or at least to travel there on a regular and consistent basis. Low-cost rental accommodations may be available on the museum grounds. As much as possible, recipients should be prepared to devote their full time to the award for the duration of their appointment. The grant program is also valuable for the collegial association it provides. As a center for advanced study in the humanities, Hagley is a focal point for a community of scholars. Scholars are expected to participate in seminars which meet periodically, as well as attend noontime colloquia, lectures, concerts, exhibits, and other public programs offered during their tenure. Stipends are for a minimum of two weeks and a maximum of two months at no more than $1,400 per month.

Undergraduate Internships

Four or five internships per year are available for undergraduate students or recent graduates to work directly with collections and research staff at the Museum. Internships are 10 weeks long and are usually taken in the summer.
