Minnesota History: Building A Legacy

Up to $5,000 Awarded to Researchers Advancing Minnesota History

We're pleased to announce a new Legacy Research Fellowship. This competitive fellowship is designed to support research on Minnesota history that is conducted at the Society’s Gale Family Library. The fellowship is open to any post-college Minnesota scholar.

"The goal of the project is to support research on Minnesota history and cultural heritage, especially in areas where there is a scholarly gap" said Jennifer Jones, director of the Minnesota Historical Society's Library and Collections. "We are pleased to be able to advance Minnesota scholarship in this way."

Applicants can apply for a fellowship stipend of $1,000 to $5,000. The size of the award will be chosen based on the scope and duration of the research project.

This opportunity is now closed.
