The IHR has two broad categories of Fellowship: Senior and Junior. The online application system is for Junior Research Fellowships (JRFs) only, that is, stipendiary Fellowships for doctoral students or early career researchers, which are tenable at the IHR for up to one year.
The Senior Fellowships suite is comprised of Honorary, Senior Research, Associate, and Visiting Fellowships. Further details on eligibility and application procedures may be found here: http://www.history.ac.uk/fellowships/senior
The IHR also administers a variety of prizes, bursaries and small awards for postgraduate students and professional historians.
