Brown Teacher Research Fellowship

Deadline extended to Monday May 20, 2024.

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 the summer, the Brown Fellows work 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 Fellows are required to make a presentation at their regional Brown Teacher Institute based on their research.

This year the Brown Fellowship will focus on research and projects that explore Virginia’s Indigenous history in support of the Library’s current exhibition, Indigenous Perspectives (Through Aug. 17, 2024).
