New York Public Library (NYPL) is pleased to announce the availability of
fellowships to supports research projects related to 19th century New York
history.

NYPL is currently digitizing the papers of Samuel J. Tilden. The papers will
be accessible via the Library’s web site early in 2013. In conjunction with
its making this important archival resource available online, NYPL is
offering research fellowships of up to $5,000 to support research projects
related to Tilden’s circle of activity and the political culture in New York
and the United States during the 19th century.

Fellows will spend at least one month in residence in the Manuscripts and
Archives Division at the New York Public Library, consulting the Tilden
papers and other archives relevant to their research goals. Fellows will
also be expected to produce an essay of 3,000-5,000 words for publication on
the Library’s website. These essays will complement and provide context for
the Tilden papers online.

NYPL’s Tilden archival research fellowships aim to support traditional
archival research and narrative historical writing, but also seek to engage
audiences beyond advanced researchers using the Tilden papers and other
primary sources online. Successful candidates for the fellowship will
therefore bring fresh insight to the Tilden papers and also a desire to
explore the creative space of public scholarship – expanding their
professional expertise while helping solidify the NYPL online archives
environment as a venue for research and historical communication.

Individuals interested in projects related to archival collections at NYPL
are encouraged to contact archives@nypl.org.
