Mary Baker Eddy Library awards fellowships

The Mary Baker Eddy Library awards fellowships to academic scholars and independent researchers for research in its collections, which center on the papers of Mary Baker Eddy and records documenting the history of Christian Science. 

Relevant areas of research include the fields of women’s history, spirituality and health, religious studies, nineteenth-century history, cultural and social history, architecture, and journalism.

The Library’s newly public collections offer scholars countless opportunities for original research. A select list of such resources include: Mary Baker Eddy’s scrapbooks and copybooks; household account ledgers and receipts; a fully-indexed file of newspapers clippings that date to the late nineteenth century; Eddy’s sermons and lectures; an extensive historic photograph collection; architectural records; early histories of branch Churches of Christ, Scientist; and Eddy’s voluminous correspondence and manuscript material, which offer opportunities for new analysis of her life and ideas.

The Library’s research programs are designed to support original contributions to scholarship and help further research by established scholars, graduate students, and recent graduates just beginning their academic careers.

Applications for research fellowships at The Mary Baker Eddy Library are welcome from scholars and researchers working in such fields as women’s history, spirituality and health, religious studies, nineteenth century history, architecture, cultural and social history, and journalism. The Library awards fellowships to qualified individuals engaged in scholarly research and writing that coincides with and whose work would be enhanced by research in the Library collections. Preference will be given to applicants with a record of previous publication, or those showing strong potential for publication, and a definite plan for disseminating the research through publication, lecturing, etc. The fellowships are open to faculty members, postdoctoral scholars, independent researchers, and graduate students. Fellowships are available for one to eight weeks in residence at the Library.
