Fellows will be awarded a stipend of up to $5,000 per month, for up to one academic year (9 consecutive months). Replacement funds are available as needed 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 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.
