Researchers Supported by Other Agencies

The nationally and internationally renowned collections of the Massachusetts Historical Society attract researchers from around the globe. Not only does the MHS provide support to scholars through the four fellowship programs that it offers but other prestigious organizations also sponsor visits to use the Society's collections.
