Ellen Clarke Temple Research Fellowship

The Ellen Clarke Temple Research Fellowship in Texas Women’s History is given annually ($1000) for the best proposal for research in the history of women in Texas. The proposal must be no longer than two pages. It must specify the purpose of the research, the need for the money, and provide a description of the product that will result (article, book, exhibition, other).  The fellowship will be announced at the Texas State Historical Association's annual meeting in March each year. Judges may withhold the fellowship at their discretion.  Recipients are required to provide quarterly progress updates to the Ruthe Winegarten Foundation for Texas Women’s History during the research period.

Individuals should submit an entry form, four copies of vita, and four (4) copies of a proposal to the Texas State Historical Association (TSHA) office by the December deadline each year (exact deadline is available on the entry form).
