Paul Cuffe Memorial Fellowship

For the Study of Minorities in American Maritime HistorySince 1989, Mystic Seaport's Paul Cuffe fellowship has provided funds to over sixty researchers from universities, colleges, and museums. The fellowships are offered to encourage research that considers the participation of Native Americans, African Americans, and other minorities in maritime activities. Fellowships support research and writing, a portion of which should normally be carried out in the Mystic area. The fellowships of up to $2,400 are made possible through the generosity of a local private foundation.For further information, or to make application,
