Research Fellowship Program

Description

The Virginia Historical Society offers fellowships of up to three weeks a year. For the purpose of this program, a week is defined as five days in the research library, which is open 10 am to 5 pm, Monday through Saturday. Applicants whose research promises to result in significant publication, including the Virginia Magazine of History & Biography, will receive primary consideration. Because the program is designed to help defray travel expenses, residents of the Richmond metropolitan area are not eligible for fellowships. This fellowship is open to doctoral candidates. Undergraduates, masters students, and graduate students not yet admitted to Ph.D. candidacy are not eligible. 2021 update: Due to uncertainties associated with the coronavirus pandemic, the research fellowships program has been suspended for one year. Applications for 2021 will not be accepted. Virginia Historical Society plans to resume the program for the 2022 calendar year, with applications being accepted in January of that year.
