Grant Description
Fellowships of $3,000 to West Virginia teachers and scholars for in-depth humanities research and writing projects. Applicants should contact program staff prior to applying. Funding may be used to cover expenses related to the research project. The purpose of the program is to provide an opportunity for individuals to devote time to reflection, investigation, and writing. Fellows will have the opportunity to enhance their capacity as teachers, scholars, or interpreters of the humanities.

The applicant must propose a project or a portion of an extended project that can be completed during the Fellowship period.

Applications for Fellowships will be judged on the following criteria:

  • The conception, definition, and organization of the project
  • The significance of the proposal to a field of the humanities
  • The likelihood that the project will be completed as proposed


Additional Eligibility Criteria
Fellowships are open to West Virginia teachers, college faculty, and independent scholars who want to complete independent research projects. Collaborative research proposals will also be considered.

To be eligible for a Fellowship, the applicant must:
- Demonstrate evidence of interest and accomplishment in a field of the humanities
- Reside or be employed in West Virginia;
- Not have received a West Virginia Humanities Council Fellowship grant within the preceding two years
- Not be seeking support for work leading toward a degree or to fund routine preparations for teaching

Fellowships are awarded in support of research costs and should not be sought for publishing costs associated with a completed project.
