For more than 60 years, the Frank C. Munson Institute at the Mystic Seaport Museum in Stonington, Connecticut has drawn graduate students, faculty, and independent scholars to its residential, five week-long summer programs in maritime studies. During the summer of 2024, the Munson Institute will offer two co-current courses focused on the American maritime experience. These courses will trace U.S. maritime heritage from before “America” to the present, exploring maritime communities, cultures, and industries through lecture, discussion, and independent research.

Applicants for the 2024 summer session may apply for one of the twelve fellowships. Each of the resident fellowships, set to run from June 24 – July 26, will be supported with a $2,000 stipend, accommodations in museum-owned housing, and book purchases. Applicants with a specific research and writing project are encouraged to apply separately for a Paul Cuffe Memorial Fellowship for additional funding of up to $2400.
