The Huntington Library awards over 150 research fellowships annually. Recipients of all fellowships are expected to be in continuous residence at The Huntington and to participate in, and make a contribution to, its intellectual life.

The Huntington is a collections-based research institute, which promotes humanities scholarship on the basis of its library holdings and art collections. The Library holds more than eleven million items that span the 11th to 21st centuries. Its diverse materials center on fourteen intersecting collection strengths:

American history
architecture, landscape design, and planning
British history
California
early printed books
Hispanic history and culture
history of science, technology and medicine
literature in English
medieval manuscripts
maps and atlases
the Pacific Rim
prints, posters, and ephemera
photography
Western American history

The Art Collections feature European and American art spanning more than 500 years, with diverse strengths ranging from Renaissance Italian bronzes to British Grand Manner portrait paintings to early American folk art to twentieth-century drawings, prints, and photography.

In addition to reinterpreting the well-known highlights of our collections, thereby connecting them with new and broader audiences, we aim to inspire future generations of scholars and artists by providing greater access to all of our collections.
