Moore Fellowship

The Margaret W. Moore and John M. Moore Research Fellowship provides a research stipend to promote research that uses the resources of the Friends Historical Library and/or the Swarthmore College Peace Collection. Strong preference will be given to projects that make significant use of resources available only on-site at Swarthmore College.​

Moore Student Fellowship

The Moore Student Fellowship provides a $600 stipend for students to complete a 30-hour project researching a topic of their choosing using resources available in our collections. Applications are due annually in March. Learn more at the  Friends Historical Library website

Moore Fellowship for non-students

A stipend in the amount of $1,400 per week, for a minimum of one week and a maximum of four weeks, will be distributed to 2-6 researchers. Research fellows are expected to travel to Swarthmore to conduct their research on-campus (if possible) between July 1, 2023 and June 30, 2024. Learn more at the Friends Historical Library website.
