The Public Humanities Fellowships helps writers, independent scholars, community historians, and college and university faculty members share meaningful research, stories, and cultural expressions that are relevant to Virginia’s diverse communities and that connect audiences to wider regional, national, and global contexts. All Fellows will receive a stipend of up to $15,000 to support their projects. If desired, Fellows may complete their four-month fellowship in residence—at Virginia Humanities’ public humanities center in Charlottesville, or the Library of Virginia in Richmond—or virtually. Fellows must be eighteen years or older, reside in Virginia, and be working on a project that is relevant to communities within Virginia. Direct affiliation with a college or university is not required.
