The Society funds a series of Fellowships for historians at doctoral and postdoctoral level.
Centenary & Marshall Fellowships
Our annual Centenary Fellowship and Marshall Fellowship provide support for historians who are completing a PhD. Recipients hold the fellowships at the Institute of Historical Research (IHR), University of London.
The Centenary and Marshall Fellowships are awarded for either 6 or 12 months and include training and preparation for work after completion of the doctorate. Applications for the next round of Centenary and Marshall Fellowships, 2022-3, take place via the Institute of Historical Research.
Past & Present Fellowship: Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History
Our Past & Present Fellowship: Race, Ethnicity & Equality in History is held jointly at the Society and the Institute of Historical Research, University of London. The Fellowship is a two-year award, generously co-funded by the Past & Present Society.
The Fellowship allows the holder to work half-time on a postdoctoral project in the history of race, ethnicity and equality, and half-time to support the Society’s work in this area of advocacy and research. The current Past & Present Fellow, 2020-22, is Dr Diya Gupta.
Early Career Fellowship Grants
In December 2020, the Society introduced its Early Career Fellowship Grants to assist researchers in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The Fellowship Grants of up to £2000 support career-building research or activities in the post-PhD period, and are intended to facilitate a discrete project, such as a monograph proposal or first article. Grants are made several time a year.
