The Silas Palmer Fellowship provides an award of up to $5,000 to support research based on our collections. Recipients are expected to spend a minimum of ten days at the Hoover Institution Library & Archives directly accessing collection materials in the reading room, and complete their research and post-visit summary report within one year of being accepted into the cohort.


Undergraduate and graduate students currently residing in the United States are eligible* to apply for the Silas Palmer Fellowship. US faculty, postdocs, independent scholars, and non-US faculty are eligible to apply for the Scholar Research Support Grant.
