Virginia Foundation for the Humanities Resident Fellows Program

The VFH Fellowship program offers time, space, and resources to scholars applying the tools of history, philosophy, ethics, cultural studies, and literary criticism to matters of public concern. Each Fellowship session includes affiliated and independent scholars and professionals, including librarians, museum curators, writers, journalists, and others. This year we are accepting proposals on subjects with strong public interest in any field of the humanities. We also encourage projects on violence and its intergenerational effects, the South Atlantic United States, Revolutionary War history, folklife, and African American and Virginia history. All Fellowship opportunities are open to independent and affiliated scholars, professionals, and others working on projects in the humanities. Applicants need not have advanced degrees, but VFH generally does not support work toward a degree. Postdoctoral applicants are strongly encouraged to apply for projects other than dissertation revisions.

Due December 15, 2008
