The Minnesota Historical Society is pleased to announce the 2015 recipients of the Gale Family Library Legacy Research Fellowships. This is the second round of fellowships awarded by MNHS, made possible by funding from the Legacy Amendment’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
The competitive fellowship is designed to support research on Minnesota history that is conducted at MNHS’ Gale Family Library at the Minnesota History Center. The fellowship is open to any post-college Minnesota scholar.
The 2015 winners and their topics:
All fellowship recipients receive a stipend. Recipients will write articles for MNopedia, MNHS’s online resource for reliable information about significant people, places, events and things in Minnesota history. Several hope to produce articles for MNHS’s journal, Minnesota History as well.
Announcement details for the 2016 round of Legacy Fellowships will be made in July 2015, with an application deadline in fall 2015.
