Mellon Humanities Postdoctoral Fellows

The National Park Foundation (NPF) is pleased to announce request for proposals to host Mellon Humanities Postdoctoral Fellows (Mellon Fellows) in the first cohort of 15 two-year fellowships starting September 2023 and ending August 2025. Prospective hosts may be individual or consortia of parks and program offices. National Heritage Areas are also eligible to apply in partnership with a park unit, regional office, or program office.

In partnership with NPS staff, the incoming cohort of Mellon Fellows will contribute to planning and preparation for the 250th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. Commemorations linked to this event offer the NPS a chance to tell a more accurate, inclusive, and transparent story of the American past and present. New humanities scholarship, informed by the subject matter expertise and training of the Mellon Fellows, can serve as a foundation for the development of innovative in-person and digital programming to addresses the needs of this pivotal moment for the agency and the country.

Through inclusivity and intentional storytelling, The National Park Foundation’s Inclusive Storytelling Grant seeks to amplify the stories of under-represented people who have shaped America, the National Park Service, and specific parks.
