Award Amount: Up to $3000
 
Description:
These awards are available only for Graduate students at Yale University.
 
The general purpose of the fellowships is to support research projects on slavery, resistance, abolition, or their legacies. Projects may focus on historical or contemporary issues involving the United States or international regions. Fellowships are available for research in the United States and internationally. Fellowships up to $3,000 will be awarded for relevant research expenses to current Yale graduate students at both the Masters and Doctoral levels. Applications from graduate students from the Yale professional schools will also be considered.

Awardees of the fellowship are expected to submit a one- to two-page report of their research. In addition, awardees may be asked to offer a seminar or presentation of their research results upon their return to the Yale campus. Any publication or public presentations resulting from the awardees’ projects should acknowledge support of the Gilder Lehrman Center.
