Predoctoral Fellowships

Applications are due DECEMBER 1. We will post a new application form in summer 2023.

The Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture offers predoctoral fellowships for early American graduate students.

Lapidus-OI Fellowships offer up to eight $1,000 fellowships annually to support advanced graduate student archival research related to early American and transatlantic print culture. The funds are intended to help defray the cost of travel expenses associated with research. Advanced graduate students working at institutions in the United States and abroad are encouraged and eligible to apply.

Fellowships in Historical Editing are awarded to talented history and American Studies graduate students at William & Mary who have served as OI apprentices. These annual fellowships recognize exemplary work by apprentices. Current or former OI editorial apprentices in any phase of their graduate school experience in the Department of History or the American Studies Program at William & Mary are eligible to apply.
