The Gilder Lehrman Center typically offers two types of postdoctoral and faculty fellowships that advance the study of slavery, its role in the creation of the modern world, and its legacies. They are the one-month and fourth-month Postdoctoral and Faculty Fellowships and the year-long Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery Fellowship.
The Postdoctoral and Faculty Fellowships and the Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery Fellowship are in-residence positions. During their time in New Haven, fellows have access to Yale University libraries and resources, office space at the Gilder Lehrman Center, give a public lecture, and participate in the intellectual life at the Center.
For the 2020-2021 fellowships, highest priority is given to applications that are fully complete by March 2, 2020.
