The Paul Cuffe Memorial Fellowship

Mystic Seaport Museum

Since 1989, the Museum’s Paul Cuffe Fellowship has provided funds to researchers from universities, colleges, and museums. The fellowships are offered to encourage research that considers the participation of Native and African Americans in the maritime activities of America, particularly in New England. The first option supports research and writing, a portion of which should normally be carried out in the Mystic area. The second option builds the research and writing into five weeks of residence and summertime University of Connecticut graduate courses held at Mystic Seaport Museum’s Munson Institute. See website for details.
