To encourage the scholarly use of the Library's Resources, the David Library of the American Revolution has awarded month-long residential fellowships to qualified post-doctoral researchers and Ph. D. candidates since 1985. In addition to rent-free housing on the Library's campus for the duration of their fellowships, DLAR Fellows receive a stipend (in the range of $1000 to $1600 per month, based on need) and 24-hour access to the library. Over the past 30 years, DLAR has awarded nearly 200 fellowships to scholars who have gone on to write hundreds of dissertations, academic articles, academic papers and books, and to teach at major institutions of higher learning worldwide.
The term of the DLAR Fellowship is one month. Both doctoral candidates and post-doctoral scholars are welcome to apply; doctoral candidates must be from a Ph.D.- granting institution and be in the research/writing stage of their dissertation. Applications are encouraged from all relevant disciplines, including History, Africana Studies, American Studies, Gender Studies, Women's Studies, Political Science, Religion, Law, Geography and others. DLAR does not fund research conducted at other institutions.
