Several of the general short-term fellowships are reserved for archaeologists whose work focuses on issues of slavery in the greater Chesapeake region and whose work would benefit from the use of the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery. For more information on the archive, please see http://www.daacs.org.
Short-term fellowships are awarded for periods of one, two, three or four months to doctoral candidates and postdoctoral scholars from any country. Awards carry a stipend of $2,000 per month plus pre-approved travel costs for scholars from the United States and Canada. The International Fellowship awards include a stipend for $3,000 per month and pre-approved travel costs. Residential accommodation may be available on a limited basis.
Fellows are expected to be in residence at the Center during the course of the fellowship, and no awards are made for work carried on elsewhere. Fellows have access to Monticello’s expert staff and research holdings as well as to the extensive resources of the Alderman Library at the University of Virginia. ICJS/DAACS fellows will be provided with work space as well as access to computers and archive staff. During their residencies, fellows are expected to deliver an informal 45 minute talk on their projects.
