Huntington Library and Art Collection Fellowships

Scholars come from around the world every year to conduct advanced humanities research using The Huntington’s collections. Through a rigorous peer-review program, the institution awards approximately 200 fellowships to scholars in the fields of history, literature, art, and the history of science. These scholarly pursuits lead to best-selling books, Pulitzer Prizes, acclaimed documentary films, and many of the history and social studies textbooks that educate the nation’s school children. The Huntington's independent research library has significant holdings in British and American history; British and American literature; art history, the history of science and medicine; and the history of the book. The collections range chronologically from the eleventh century to the present and include 7 million manuscripts, 450,000 rare books, 440,000 reference works, and 1.3 million photographs, prints, and ephemera. A remarkable collection in the history of science and technology consists of some 67,000 rare books and reference volumes, as well as an important collection of scientific instruments. The Art Collections contain several notable British and American paintings; innumerable fine prints and photographs; and an art reference library. In the library of the Botanical Gardens is a broad collection of reference works in botany, horticulture, and gardening.

There are a number of both short and long-term fellowships.
