Research Fellowships in the Humanities
The Harry Ransom Center annually awards more than 50 fellowships to support short-term residencies for research projects that require substantial on-site use of its collections.
The fellowships range from one to three months, with stipends of $3,000 per month. Also available are $1,200 to $1,700 travel stipends and dissertation fellowships with a $1,500 stipend. The stipends are generously funded by individual donors and organizations, including the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Dorot Foundation, the Creekmore and Adele Fath Charitable Foundation, the Carl H. Pforzheimer Endowment, and the Marlene Nathan Meyerson Photography Fellowship Endowment.
