New York Public Library (NYPL) is pleased to announce the availability of 
fellowships to supports research projects related to 19th century New York 

For more information and application instructions go to the URL:

NYPL is currently digitizing the papers of Samuel J. Tilden. The papers will 
be accessible via the Library’s web site early in 2013. In conjunction with 
its making this important archival resource available online, NYPL is 
offering research fellowships of up to $5,000 to support research projects 
related to Tilden’s circle of activity and the political culture in New York 
and the United States during the 19th century.

Fellows will spend at least one month in residence in the Manuscripts and 
Archives Division at the New York Public Library, consulting the Tilden 
papers and other archives relevant to their research goals. Fellows will 
also be expected to produce an essay of 3,000-5,000 words for publication on 
the Library’s website. These essays will complement and provide context for 
the Tilden papers online.

NYPL’s Tilden archival research fellowships aim to support traditional 
archival research and narrative historical writing, but also seek to engage 
audiences beyond advanced researchers using the Tilden papers and other 
primary sources online. Successful candidates for the fellowship will 
therefore bring fresh insight to the Tilden papers and also a desire to 
explore the creative space of public scholarship – expanding their 
professional expertise while helping solidify the NYPL online archives 
environment as a venue for research and historical communication.
