Charles A. Lindbergh Chair in Aerospace History

Deadline

December 1 (Recommendation letters December 15).

The Charles A. Lindbergh Chair in Aerospace History is a competitive 12-month fellowship open Oct 15, to senior scholars with distinguished records of publication who are at work on, or anticipate being at work on, books in aerospace history.

Eligibility

The Lindbergh Chair is open to established and recognized senior scholars with distinguished records of publication who are at work on, or anticipate being at work on, books in aerospace history. Residency in the Washington, DC area is a requirement. Interaction with Museum professional staff is highly desired and expected, including attendance at selected professional seminars and colloquia. Appointments cannot be automatically extended and typically are not renewable. The incumbent will be expected to engage in work leading to a major publication. Participation in the Museum's work-in-progress series is expected.

Term

Tenure typically ranges from nine months up to an academic year (September through August). NOTE: The Lindbergh Chair selection process runs one cycle earlier than for the other fellowships because senior scholars often need more time to arrange sabbaticals or leave.
