Program in Early American Economy and Society (PEAES) Post-Doctoral Fellowships support research in the collections of the Library Company and other nearby institutions into the origins and development of the early American economy, broadly conceived, to roughly 1850. The fellowships provide scholars the opportunity to investigate the history of commerce, finance, technology, manufacturing, agriculture, internal improvements, economic policy making and other topics. Applicants may be citizens of any country, and they must hold a Ph.D. by the start of the fellowship. The stipend is $50,000 for the academic year, or if the award is divided between two scholars, $25,000 per semester.
Both senior scholars and early-career scholars are welcome to apply. All post-doctoral fellowships are tenable from September 1 through May 31, and fellows must be in continuously in residence at the Library Company for the duration of their fellowships.
