Dr. Mian A. Jan Fellowship ~ The Chester County Historical Society (CCHS) is proud to introduce the Dr. Mian A. Jan Fellowship. This college-level fellowship will provide a paid internship opportunity for a history student with a particular focus on collecting the stories, history, and artifacts of the Indo-Pak experience in Chester County. This select opportunity will allow CCHS to include the history of the Indian and Pakistani communities in the county into the county’s history through collection of oral histories, original research, and artifact collection. Ultimately, CCHS plans to incorporate a representative portion of these materials in our new permanent exhibition Chester County:  A Place in History which will open in late 2016. The work of the Dr. Mian A. Jan Fellow will also provide a permanent body of information and materials to ensure that this collection is preserved in perpetuity. If you would like to contribute to the Dr. Mian A. Jan Fellowship, please make your donation payable to the Chester County Historical Society and add a notation that it is for the Dr. Mian A. Jan Fellowship.
