The ICJS fellowship program for domestic and international scholars promotes research of Jefferson’s life and times and the community at Monticello. Since its founding, the ICJS has hosted nearly 300 domestic and international scholars from the U.S. and 25 countries around the world, including Pulitzer-Prize winning historians Alan Taylor and Jack Rakove. The Center offers short-term fellowships that allow researchers and teachers to consult with Monticello scholars and librarians and to utilize the resources of the Jefferson Library and the University of Virginia libraries. Residential accommodation may be available on a limited basis. Priority is given to Jefferson-related projects using the Digital Archeological Archive of Comparative Slavery or Getting Word.
The International Center currently has three fellowship and grant programs available:
- Fellowships for DAACS-related projects
- Barringer Research Fellowships for Teachers of American History
- Joint McNeil Center for Early American Studies Fellowships. Applicants should contact the McNeil Center; details are available at their web site: http://www.mceas.org/.
