Chemical Heritage Foundation fellowships
The Chemical Heritage Foundation is an independent research library that awards 18 fellowships (10 short-term and 8 long-term) per year. As such, we are the largest fellowship program in the history and social studies of science in the country. We construe "chemistry" broadly and fund a wide range of work (see our website--http://www.chemheritage.org/research/fellowships-and-travel-grants/beckman-center-fellowships/index.aspx --for a list of current fellows). Fellows find a lively academic community at CHF, where they have the opportunity to participate in a writing group and weekly talk series, and are a part of the Philadelphia Area Center for the History of Science consortium of scholars and libraries.
