The State Historical Society of Missouri announces three Center for Missouri Studies fellowship opportunities for the calendar year beginning January 1, 2016.

Essays must be completed by the end of calendar year 2016 and must reflect significant scholarship in primary sources, evidence familiarity with appropriate secondary sources, and contain endnotes that comply with The Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition.
