The American Numismatic Society is pleased to announce the inauguration of the Chairman’s Fellowships for Numismatic Research. Beginning in 2023, the ANS will award a limited number of fellowships each year, worth between $1,500 and $2,500 each, to qualified graduate students or scholars pursuing serious numismatic research projects that are expected to result in academic publication.
Proposals for funding should provide an overview of the research project, a brief timeline for the work, communicate how the results of the research will be disseminated (journal article, book, etc.), and clearly indicate how fellowship funds will support the work (research travel, image reproduction fees, etc.).
