Fellowship for the study of the Public History of Slavery

One fully-supported two-year fellowship is available each year for a student pursuing an M.A. in public humanities who is interested in working in museums and other cultural institutions on issues related to the history and legacy of slavery. The fellowships are intended to help prepare future professionals who can help museums and cultural institutions address controversial issues, teaching the public and initiating broad conversations about slavery, race and racism, and retrospective justice.

The fellowships cover tuition, fees, and a stipend.

Students applying for this fellowship should focus their personal statement to express their interest and explain how their academic and professional preparation and career goals make them appropriate candidates for this fellowship.
