Society of Indiana Pioneers MA & PhD Research Fellowship (deadline 15 MAY 2015)

The Society of Indiana Pioneers annually awards Society of Indiana Pioneers Fellowships to support research in the field of pioneer Indiana history for the master’s thesis and the doctoral dissertation. The Society of Indiana Pioneers was founded in 1916, during the centennial celebration of Indiana’s statehood, “to honor the memory and the work of the pioneers of Indiana.” Membership includes individuals who have an ancestor who settled in an Indiana county during the pioneer period (generally defined as before 1840, with some exceptions) and people who have an interest in this period of Hoosier history. To fulfill its mission, the Society maintains a significant genealogical database culled from its membership records, sponsors annual spring and fall “pilgrimages” to historical sites within the state, and partners with other history-related organizations.

There will be two $1,000 fellowships awarded annually, one to support research for a master’s thesis in the pioneer period of Indiana history and another for doctoral dissertation research. For the purposes of the fellowship program, the pioneer period of Indiana is defined as pre-1850. Only students at graduate institutions in Indiana are eligible for these fellowships.
