The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) awards short-term research fellowships to visiting scholars for one to four weeks of residency. The awards range from $500 (for one week) to $2,000 (for four weeks). Grantees are typically notified within six weeks.

Researchers have used the Kentucky Historical Society’s rich archival holdings to shed light on a vast array of topics, from frontier land distribution and law, to Civil War medicine and from river-borne commerce in the 19th century to Kentucky’s nuclear energy industry.
