Predoctoral Fellowships

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 research related to early American and transatlantic print culture. Advanced graduate students working at institutions in the United States and abroad are encouraged and eligible to apply.

During the COVID-19 pandemic travel requirements for this fellowship are suspended. Recipients may use the funds for travel (if/when possible) or as otherwise needed to support their research.

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.
