The New York Public Library is pleased to offer National Endowment for the Humanities Long-Term Fellowships to support advanced research at the Library’s flagship Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. Fellowships are open to scholars researching the history, literature, and culture of peoples represented in collections housed at the Schwarzman Building and to professionals in fields related to the Library’s holdings, including librarianship and archives administration, special collections, photography, prints, and maps. Projects drawing heavily on collections traditionally used to advance the social sciences, science and technology, psychology, education, and religion are also eligible, but only if the project takes a humanistic approach, relies on typically humanities-related methodologies, and contributes to the body of knowledge which enlightens the human experience.

The NEH Long-Term fellowships support two fellows for nine months.

Individuals seeking support for research leading to degrees are not eligible for the fellowship. Candidates for advanced degrees must have received the degree by the application deadline. U.S. Citizens and permanent residents are eligible to apply, as are foreign nationals who have lived in the United States for at least three years immediately prior to the January 3, 2023 application deadline. Fellows are expected to be in continuous residence throughout the fellowship award period from September 1, 2023 to May 31, 2024.
