The Massachusetts Historical Society will offer about 30 research fellowships for the academic year 2010-2011, including at least two long-term research fellowships made possible by the National Endowment for the Humanities. The Society also offers Short-Term Fellowships, and participates in the New England Regional Fellowship Consortium. For more information about the Society's research fellowships please visit our web site, or contact Conrad E. Wright(, 617-646-0512.
Application deadlines: MHS-NEH fellowships, January 15, 2010; New England Regional Fellowships, February 1, 2010; MHS Short-Term fellowships, March 1, 2010.

NOTE: I had a fellowship from the Society while working on Cold War Civil Rights. This is a great place to do research, with many sources of interest to legal historians. A list of finding aids to manuscript collections is here.
