About Our Research Fellowship Opportunities
The Society offers three research fellowships through the Wisconsin Historical Society Press.
- D.C. Everest Fellowship
- Amy Louise Hunter Fellowship
- Alice E. Smith Fellowship
Each fellowship supports research and writing for publication of books by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. Professional and nonprofessional writers, academics, and independent scholars are invited to apply. Only individuals, not organizations, are eligible, and grants are given in the amount of $1,000-$2,000.
The fellowship awards may deal with any topic eligible for publication by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press. All applications are automatically considered for all awards. The Wisconsin Historical Society Press publishes books dealing with Wisconsin history and culture.
The Wisconsin Historical Society Press has the right of first refusal for any manuscripts developed with these awards. Grant recipients are required to submit book manuscripts first to the Society Press. The fellowship is considered as payment for publication rights. If the Society declines to publish the work, rights revert back to the author.
How to Apply
Applications consist of a cover sheet, resume and completed book proposal (See the Wisconsin Historical Society Press Book Proposals). Applications are accepted year round.
