Lemelson Center Fellows Program

The Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, established in 1995 at the Smithsonian Institution, National Museum of American History, has already proven to be a dynamic force. It devotes its resources to documenting, interpreting, and disseminating information about invention and innovation, to encouraging inventive creativity in young people, and to fostering an appreciation for the central role invention and innovation play in United States history.

The Lemelson Center Fellows Program awards fellowships for a maximum of ten weeks work in Washington, D.C., which includes participating in the Center’s activities and presenting one’s work at the museum. Projects might include historical research and documentation, exhibitions, conferences, multimedia products, and educational initiatives. Other possibilities may be funded as well.
