Up to $6,000 will be awarded. Special programs within the grants program include the APS/British Academy Fellowship for Research in London, which is an exchange postdoctoral fellowship for one to two months' research in the archives and libraries of London; and the APS/Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities Fellowship for Research in Edinburgh, which offers a visiting fellowship of two to four months for research in Edinburgh in any aspect of the humanities and social sciences.
