The Hindle Fellowship

The Brooke Hindle Postdoctoral Fellowship in the History of Technology honors the contribution of Brooke Hindle to the work of the Society for the History of Technology. The Fellowship, made possible thanks to the great generosity of his family, is for $10,000 and may be used, as further detailed below, for any purpose connected with research or writing in the history of technology for a period of not less than three months during the calendar year following the award.

Applicants must hold a doctorate in the history of technology or a related field. The doctorate can be awarded no more than four years before the application deadline, and no later than nine months after the application deadline. (Applicants who graduated more than four years before the deadline but have extenuating circumstances, such as family commitments, may apply at the discretion of the committee chair.) Other awards may be held in conjunction with the Fellowship.

The proposal must be in a field related to the history of technology. Applicants should be intending either to prepare a dissertation for publication as articles or as a monograph, or to develop a new project based on primary research. Applications must be in English.

Applications must include

Frequently Asked Questions

Do applicants need to be affiliated with an academic institution (or any kind of research-related organization) for the duration of the fellowship?

Why is a dissertation summary necessary when an applicant is proposing a new project?

Are there any specific requirements for the writing sample? Would it be possible for an applicant to submit a published article, or should it be a shorter text?

If the applicant had the opportunity to also organize “outreach” activities based on the project, for example seminars, workshops or conferences, should that be mentioned in the proposal, or should applicants strictly focus on research activities only?
