Administered by the Center for the History of Business, Technology and Society, Hagley invites serious researchers to apply for one of our grants to defray the costs of an extended stay intended to use their collections. Henry Belin du Pont Dissertation Fellowships are designed for graduate students who have completed all course work for the doctoral degree and are conducting research on their dissertation. 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.
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. (Recipients who use this housing are strongly encouraged to have a car available for transportation during their residency.) Dissertation fellows are expected to have no other obligations during the term of the fellowship, to maintain continuous residence at Hagley for its duration, and to participate in events organized by Hagley’s Center for the History of Business, Technology, and Society.
