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: one-month and fourth-month Postdoctoral and Faculty Fellowships; and the annual Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery Fellowships.

The Postdoctoral and Faculty Fellowships and the Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery Fellowships, and Digital Humanities Postdoctoral 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. 

We expect that the deadline for applications for the 2019-2020 fellowships will be early March, 2019. The application details will be available, on this page, by early January, 2019.
