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 over 400 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. Projects using the Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery or the Getting Word African American Oral History Project are encouraged.
A list of recent ICJS and Barringer Fellows is available.
