Fellowships

Graduate Program in History Fellowship: These fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis to incoming students. The fellowship covers tuition plus a $2500 stipend per semester for up to 4 semesters and requires students to perform 150 hours of work per semester in an experiential learning program overseen by the graduate program director.  Continuing funding is dependent upon maintaining a GPA of 3.5 or higher, making adequate progress toward degree completion, and satisfactorily fulfilling the experiential learning requirement.  The award cannot be used in conjunction with other awards such as the Swan Fellowship or Eagleton Fellowship, or with scholarship funding from the Graduate School at Rutgers Camden.

Swan Fellowship The Swan Historical Foundation Scholarship of $5000 is awarded to a full-time or part-time graduate student, with preference for students with interests in public history and based on academic merit and financial need. Recipients are encouraged to conduct research using the Swan Historical Foundation collection of eighteenth and early nineteenth century artifacts and documents. The collection includes more than 600 American Revolutionary War items at the National Museum of the American Revolution – founded and developed by the Swan Historical Foundation – in the Visitor’s Center at Washington Crossing State Park in Titusville, N.J. The scholarship is administered by the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) at Rutgers-Camden.
