The McNeil Center for Early American Studies
University of Pennsylvania
Philadelphia, PA

The McNeil Center offers several pre-doctoral dissertation fellowships each year for a term of nine months, beginning 1 September. Advanced graduate students from any PhD-granting institution who are in the dissertation research or writing stage are eligible to compete for these fellowships, which are open to scholars in any discipline for projects focusing on North America and the Caribbean before 1850. Proposals reliant on research in Philadelphia-area archives and libraries are espcially welcome. The application deadline for fellowships beginning in the fall of 2007 will be 1 March 2007. The Center also offers a limited number of postdoctoral fellowships. The application deadline for fellowships beginning in 2007 is 1 November 2007. In addition, the McNeil Center annually appoints a number of non-stipendiary Research Associates. This service is offered to qualified scholars—at either the pre- or post-doctoral level—visiting Philadelphia for two months or longer who wish to join our activities and are capable of providing their own financial support. Research Associates are provided with access to the University of Pennsylvania libraries and, when space permits, office facilities at the Center.
