REQUEST for PROPOSALS Maryland Historical Society Graduate Student Research Fellowship The Maryland Historical Society (MdHS) is pleased to announce a new research fellowship in Chesapeake colonial history and requests proposals from graduate students for the 2012-2013 academic year. The $5,000 fellowship is funded by a grant from John and Barbara Wing. The purpose of the Wing Fellowship is to assist a graduate student in undertaking a significant project in Chesapeake colonial history. Areas of research, which are of particular interest, include maritime history, the arts, economic development, archeology, and life in the early Chesapeake Bay region. Proposals for other subjects and themes of colonial history are also welcome.

In addition to submitting periodic progress reports, the fellow will provide the library with an annotated bibliography and research summary and deliver a presentation at the conclusion of the project. Evaluation of proposals will consider uniqueness and importance of the proposed project, soundness of the research approach, professional qualifications, and financial need.
