Residential Fellowships

The SAA is pleased to acknowledge two fellowship partners: the Huntington Library and the Folger Shakespeare Library. Applicants must be SAA members in good standing. Each short-term fellowship welcomes an inaugural SAA fellow with a stipend for a one-month residency between June 2023 and June 2024.

The Annual SAA/Huntington Fellowship

Each application is comprised of three parts:

  • A curriculum vitae of no more than three pages.
  • The names and contact information for two referees.
  • A project proposal not to exceed 1,500 words. The proposal should include, in approximately 1,000 words, a description of the project and its significance, as well as, in approximately 500 words, a description of the specific Huntington materials to be consulted and an outline of the plan of work for the fellowship period.

Application materials should be submitted to the SAA directly.

The Huntington Library offers short-term fellowships for residencies of one, two, and three months. Applicants for the SAA one-month fellowship are not prohibited from applying to the Huntington directly for additional months or for other library fellowships.

Deadline: 1 December 2023.

The Annual SAA/Folger Fellowship

Application materials should be submitted to the Folger directly. The portal for 2024–25 fellowship applications is now open. Apply at the Folger’s website.
