The Center for the United States and the Cold War supports research on the Cold War, especially on the ways in which this ideological and geopolitical conflict with the Soviet Union affected American politics, culture, and society. We will be offering a dissertation fellowship, a post-doctoral fellowship and some travel grants. Applicants for the dissertation fellowship must have passed their comprehensive examinations and expect to complete their dissertations within two years. The post-doctoral fellowship is designed for junior scholars who will have received the Ph.D. by August 31, 2014. A dissertation fellow will receive a stipend of $25,000 for a nine-month academic year. The stipend for the post-doctoral fellow is $45,000. There is one post-doctoral fellowship and one dissertation fellowship available. The Center's travel grants are for $1,000 to $2,500, depending on need, to support researchers and scholars who need to conduct in-depth research in the holdings of the Tamiment Library. Research trips may last any length of time, however only scholars outside the New York metropolitan area will be considered. This year there will be at least two travel grants.
