About this funder:



The Huntington, one of the world’s great cultural, research, and educational centers is a private, nonprofit institution founded in 1919 by Henry E. Huntington, an exceptional businessman who built a financial empire that included railroad companies, utilities, and real estate holdings in Southern California.

The Huntington also is among the nation’s most important centers for the study of the American West, with an unsurpassed collection of materials that span the full range of American western settlement, including the overland pioneer experience, the Gold Rush, and the development of Southern California.

Scholars come from around the world every year to conduct advanced humanities research using The Huntington’s collections. Through a rigorous peer-review program, the institution awards approximately 200 fellowships to scholars in the fields of history, literature, art, and the history of science.

The Dibner Program in the History of Science offers scholars the opportunity to work in the Huntington’s Burndy Library and its other resources for the study of history of science and technology.
