Buffalo Bill Center of the West (Center) in Cody, Wyoming, invites proposals for its 2018–2019 Resident Fellowship Program. Fellowships are intended to fund research advancing knowledge, understanding, and passion about the cultural and natural heritage of the American West and its global relevance. Fellows will be granted a stipend of $5,000.
Fellows may conduct archival/specimen collections-based, and/or field-based research associated with one or more of the Center’s five museums (Buffalo Bill, Cody Firearms, Draper Natural History, Plains Indian, and Whitney Western Art) and McCracken Research Library. Research and collection strengths at the Center include but are not limited to: western art and art history; Plains Indian art and cultures; Greater Yellowstone higher vertebrates, natural science video archive, ecology and conservation biology; firearms history and technology; western history, and the life and times of William F. Cody. Please explore this website for more information on these areas.
