History of Science Society Fellowship in the History of Space Science

The History of Science Society Fellowship in the History of Space Science, supported by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) History Division, funds a nine-month research project that is related to any aspect of the history of space science, from the earliest human interest in space to the present. The program is broadly conceived and includes the social, cultural, institutional and personal context of space-science history.

Applicants must possess a doctorate degree in history of science or in a closely related field, or be enrolled as a student in a doctoral degree-granting program and have completed all requirements for the Ph.D., except the dissertation, in history of science or a related field. Eligibility is not limited to U.S. citizens or residents.

The Fellowship term is for a period of nine months. The Fellow will be expected to devote the term largely to the proposed research project. The stipend is $17,000 for a nine-month fellowship during the period 1 July 2010 to 30 June 2011. The starting and ending dates within that period are flexible. Funds may not be used to support tuition or fees. Sources of anticipated support must be listed in the application form.

Applications must be received by 3 March 2010.
