Researchers have used the Kentucky Historical Society’s rich archival holdings to shed light on a vast array of topics, from frontier land distribution and law, to Civil War medicine and from river-borne commerce in the 19th century to Kentucky’s nuclear energy industry.
To help facilitate your research, KHS offers short-term fellowships (one to four weeks) to promote scholarship on any facet of Kentucky’s history.
We have three types of fellowships: General Fellowships, Oral History Use Fellowship and Churchill Weavers Fellowship. General Fellowships are available in two award cycles (March 1 and Sept. 1 each year). The Churchill Weavers Fellowship is available annually (Sept. 1), and the Oral History Use Fellowship is available annually (March 1).
