The 2024-2025 Huntington Library Research Fellowships

The Huntington Library is now accepting Research Fellowship Applications for the 2024-2025 fellowship year for Long-Term Fellowships, Short-Term Fellowships, and Travel Grants.

For details of eligibility and the applications process, see 


The Huntington offers thirteen Long-Term Fellowships for nine to twelve months in residence, each with a stipend of $50,000. They are open to scholars who hold a PhD or have successfully defended a dissertation by the application deadline. Although nine of these are open to scholars working on projects in any area where The Huntington’s collections are strong, there are specific awards for the study of maritime history (The Kemble Fellowship), the history of medicine (The Molina Fellowship) and the history of science (The Dibner Fellowships). Three awards (the Thom Fellowships) are reserved for recent post-doctoral scholars. 

Approximately 140 Short-Term Fellowships are available for one to five months in residence and carry monthly stipends of $3,500. They are open to doctoral candidates, master's students in programs requiring a thesis, faculty members, postdoctoral candidates, and independent researchers working on a scholarly project served by The Huntington’s collections. 

Six Travel Grants for Study Abroad are available in any of the fields in which The Huntington’s own collections are strong and where the research will be carried out in libraries or archives outside of the United States or Canada, especially those in the UK, continental Europe, or Latin America. 

We also offer nine Exchange Fellowships with Corpus Christi, Jesus, Linacre, Lincoln, and New Colleges, Oxford; Trinity Hall, Cambridge; Trinity College Dublin/Marsh's Library; the University of Durham; and the John Rylands Research Institute and Library at The University of Manchester. The intention is to encourage projects which can be developed both in The Huntington's collections and in archives across the world.   


The Huntington is a collections-based research and educational institution, which promotes humanities scholarship on the basis of its library holdings and Art Collections. 

The Library holds more than 11 million items that span the 11th to 21st centuries. Its diverse materials center on fourteen intersecting collection strengths. 


Applications are submitted online. The deadline for submission is 11:59 PM PST on November 15, 2023. It is advisable to begin your online application well before the application deadline. For more information, see Fellowship FAQs or email
