Hugh Hawkins Research Fellowships

Posted: December 12, 2019

The Hugh Hawkins Research Fellowship Program supports undergraduate and graduate students from any school that want to conduct archival research on the rich history of Johns Hopkins University. Fellows will perform in-depth research at the Hamburger University Archives, the Peabody Archives at the Friedheim Library, or the Chesney Medical Archives. Applications for the program are due March 9, 2020.

An award of $3,500 is given to each recipient, which is intended to be used as a cost-of-living stipend to support fellows to remain in Baltimore during the summer (June-August) of their research fellowship. Each recipient will work closely with a faculty mentor and an archivist mentor over these months. Past projects have focused on specific themes like activism, Jewish life on campus, abortion access in Baltimore City, but also on individuals who have influenced Hopkins’ history like pathologist, Arnold Rich and psychiatrist, Adolf Meyer. Special consideration is given to projects that explore the history of diversity or that propose a final product rooted in digital humanities.

Fellowship recipients are notified in late March and conduct their research over the summer. You can read more application details on our website –
