Over the years, over 100 Quinn Fellowships have been awarded to Ph.D. candidates in the 14 participating universities. The Quinn Fellows dissertations have focused on a variety of subject matters and generally fall into the following categories, including but not limited to, African, Ancient, Atlantic, China, Early Modern Europe, East Asia, Gender and Women’s History, History of Science, Business HIstory (U.S.), International & Global, Japan, Jewish History, Latin American, Caribbean, Medieval Europe, Middle East, Modern Europe (including Russia), Religion, Sociomedical Sciences, South Asia, United States, and World History.
Quinn Fellowships have helped scholars totally focus on the writing and rewriting of their dissertations without financial distractions. A Quinn Felloswhip has become a mark of distinction which is very helpful in the job market. Many former Quinn Fellows hold university level tenure-track teaching positions while others hold historical research positions for government agencies and corporations.
