Institute of Historical Research

The Institute of Historical Research (IHR) offers fellowships funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for dissertation research in the humanities in original sources. The purposes of the fellowship program are to help doctoral candidates who may otherwise not have opportunities or encouragement to work in original source materials in the humanities in the United Kingdom; help doctoral candidates in the humanities to deepen their ability to develop knowledge from original sources; provide insight from the viewpoint of doctoral candidates into how scholarly resources can be developed most helpfully in the future.
