Nonresident Fellowships

About the Program

VFH nonresidential Fellows are typically former fellows who are completing scholarly research and writing projects.  Their affiliation with the Foundation may extend beyond their residential appointment or an association may be formed years after a Fellow’s first appointment as a VFH Fellow. Our nonresidential fellows are appointed to a discrete term while they complete their projects. They are invited to participate in all VFH Fellowship programs and events.
