Yale LGBT Studies Research Fellowship

Funding Agency:
Yale University

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, we face new limitations and uncertainties. We have therefore made the difficult decision to suspend the application period for 2021-22. We hope that you will apply in 2022, and look forward to a time when we can gather again safely. 


The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Studies Fellowship at Yale University is offered annually, and is designed to provide access to Yale resources in LGBT Studies for scholars who live outside the greater New Haven area. 

Scholars from across the country and around the world are invited to apply for the Yale LGBT Studies Research Fellowship. This fellowship supports scholars from any field pursuing research in lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and/or queer studies at Yale University, utilizing the vast faculty resources, manuscript archives, and library collections available at Yale. Graduate students conducting dissertation research, independent scholars, and all faculty are invited to apply. Scholars residing within 100 miles of New Haven are ineligible.

The fellowship provides an award of $4,000, which is intended to pay for travel to and from New Haven and act as a living allowance. Granted for one month, the fellowship must be taken up between September 1, 2020 and April 30, 2021. The recipient is expected to be in residence for a minimum of twenty days during the period of their award and is encouraged to participate in the activities of Yale University, including programs organized by Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, & Transgender StudiesWomen’s, Gender, & Sexuality Studies, and the Yale Research Initiative on the History of Sexualities.

Deadline: April 17, 2020.
