Hugh Hawkins Fellowships for 2021

The Hugh Hawkins Research Fellowship Program supports undergraduate and graduate students from any school who 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 May 1, 2021.

An award of $3,500 is given to each recipient, which is intended to be used as a cost-of-living stipend but can also be used toward research expenses. Each recipient will work closely with a faculty mentor, an archivist mentor, and the Hopkins Retrospective program manager to be sure their project is on track and will produce a deliverable. Past projects have focused on specific themes in Hopkins history like activism, Jewish life on campus, and abortion access in Baltimore City, as well as 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 and (in)equity, or that propose a final product rooted in digital humanities.

Fellowship recipients will notified during the week of May 14. Their research can begin over the summer and continue into the academic year as they are expected to present their findings at a public program in April 2022 and finish their deliverable by May 2022.
