The John L. Nau III Center for Civil War History invites applications for short-term fellowships to conduct research on the U.S. Civil War era at the University of Virginia. Fellowships carry a stipend of $500 per week for up to one month.

The Albert and Shirley Small Special Collections Library holds more than 400,000 books, 15 million manuscripts, and thousands of maps, broadsides, photographs, and artifacts. It is nationally recognized for the richness of its American history collections. The Special Collections Library has recently acquired the John L. Nau III Civil War History Collection, which contains an estimated 30,000 letters, 250 diaries, and 4,000 images related to the Civil War. The collection will be available for use by our 2023 fellows.

The Nau Center's Library Fellowships are open to scholars who live beyond a 60-mile radius of Charlottesville, VA, and

  • hold a PhD or equivalent degree, or
  • are doctoral students who have advanced to candidacy, or
  • are independent scholars with a significant record of scholarly achievement.

Applications are due by November 15, 2022. Visit our website for more information:
