Edwin C. Bearss Fellowship

In 1995, then National Park Service Director and Mrs. Kennedy and the National Park Foundation established the Edwin C. Bearss Fellowship to support graduate education in American history and American studies. This Fellowship has been created to honor the career achievements of Edwin C. Bearss, National Park Service historian from 1955 until 1995, and Chief Historian from 1981 until 1994. The Fellowship is open to all National Park Service employees with at least three years of service who are engaged in historical research, management, and education.
