“Being here at Virginia Humanities, rubbing shoulders with smart, friendly, engaged people who have a wide range of interests and who have depths of knowledge in areas I don’t, that’s really stimulating.”Dave Hsiung
About the Fellowship
Fellows will be awarded a stipend of $5,000 per month, for up to a 9-month term. Replacement funds are available and will be awarded to the fellow’s home institution.
As part of the fellowship, selected candidates will have the option to choose another expert in their field of study to review and critique their research as well as network, engage, and collaborate with other scholars. In addition, fellows will share their work publicly on Virginia Humanities’ With Good Reason public radio show and podcast and have the option to publish in our digital Encyclopedia Virginia and/or present at a local cultural center/organization of their choice.
Participants can look forward to a respite from demanding workloads and find a supportive environment designed to further or complete their research. Thanks to our role as the state’s humanities council and our relationship with the University of Virginia, we’re able to provide fellows with full access to the resources and libraries at the University of Virginia and the Library of Virginia.
