The Brown Teacher Research Fellowship provides Virginia educators the opportunity to research and study a specific aspect of Virginia history and produce educational resources to support the Library of Virginia’s ongoing exhibition and education programs. The award includes a generous stipend as well as an allocation to cover registration fees and travel for conference presentations.
Over the course of two weeks during the summer, the Brown Fellow works with staff members of the Library of Virginia—including consultation with reference and archival staff members—to pursue research on the selected topic for the year. The Brown Fellow is required to make a presentation at an educational conference based on his or her research.
This year the Library of Virginia is looking for Fellows who have an interest in researching the history of Reconstruction and the Emancipation era. Piqued your interest? Then view the 2015 Brown Fellowship information to learn more about the project and how to apply.
Deadline is Friday, May 15th. Applicants will be notified by May 29th.
