To promote the interpretation of Virginia history and access to its collections, the Virginia Historical Society offers fellowships of up to three weeks a year. Because the program is designed to help defray travel expenses, residents of the Richmond metropolitan area are not eligible. We award a few grants ($150 per week) for mileage to commuting researchers who live outside that area. The majority of awards ($500 per week) go to those who live farther away and incur greater expenses. We expect recipients to work on a regular basis in our reading room during the period of their award. We welcome applications from doctoral candidates. Undergraduates, master’s students, and graduate students not yet admitted to Ph.D. candidacy are not eligible. Applicants should send an original and three copies of the following: a cover letter, a r¿sum¿, two letters of recommendation (which may be sent separately), and a description of their research project not longer than two double-spaced pages that also states the length of the award requested.
