Jerrold Seigel Fellowships in Intellectual and Cultural History
Every year it is active the Consortium will award up to two summer fellowships, named in honor of Professor Jerrold Seigel, recently retired from New York University, where he is William R. Kenan, Jr. Professor of History Emeritus.
The awards are open to students at any graduate level of training, in any geographical field or time period, but are currently limited to students enrolled at Consortium member institutions (currently Columbia and New York Universities). The amount of these fellowships is $3,000.
