Partnering Universities and Colleges

The Quinn Foundation works directly with the chairperson of each graduate histroy department.  The Foundation works with the top 25 graduate history departments in the U.S. because they have top scholars who go on to tenure – track positions at universities and are most likely to produce significant historical research.  The Quinn Foundation has worked with some of the universities for 25 years and other for 10 years or more.  Some of the top 25 graduate history departments do not need additional graduate study funding.  As the Foundation does not have unlimited funds, 13 out of the top 25 graduate history departments currently award Quinn Fellowships each year.

  • University of California Los Angeles
  • Columbia University
  • University of Chicago
  • Johns Hopkins
  • University of Michigan – Ann Arbor
  • University of Wisconsin – Madison
  • University of Illinois – Urbana
  • University of Pennsylvania
  • NY University
  • University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
  • Indiana University
  • Northwestern University


If a university is in the top 25 graduate history departments, but is not a participant in the Quinn Felloship program, as funding on the Foundation level is made available to support additional Quinn Fellowships more schools may be added.
