Scholars will find many resources to support their work here at the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, from the unique manuscript collections cared for by the Society, to fellowships to support research in those collections, to publications through which to share their work with others.


The Historical Society of Pennsylvania and the Library Company of Philadelphia award approximately twenty-five one-month fellowships each academic year. The application deadline for the 2015–16 academic year is March 1, 2015.
