The Jamestowne Society has established an annual fellowship in the amount of $2000.00 for support of the completion of a graduate thesis or essay on the history and culture of Virginia before 1700. Applicants may be candidates for the graduate degree in any relevant discipline; e.g.,History, American Studies, Literature, Archaeology, Anthropology, Fine Arts, etc., as long as their research is devoted exclusively or, at the least, very substantially to Colonial Virginia before 1700.
Applicants must supply a brief resume, a proposal outlining the thesis topic and the plans for bringing it to completion, and a brief sample of their writing, such as a term paper or seminar paper. They should also ask three persons, two of whom should have taught them on the graduate level, to write letters of reference on their behalf.
