The Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies at Monticello

Explore Monticello’s rich and diverse programs for fellows and scholars at the Robert H. Smith International Center for Jefferson Studies.

Short-term fellowships are awarded for one or more months, and open to academics from any country, subject to selection by committee.  Successful applicants will be working on Jefferson-related projects.

The Domestic fellowship awards (Batten and First Union) carry a stipend of $2,000 per month for scholars from the United States and Canada.  The Peter Nicholaisen International Fellowship (reserved for citizens of other countries living outside of the U.S. and Canada) provides $3,000 per month.  Residential accommodation may be available on a limited basis.

Applicants should submit a succinct description of the research project (500 words), a one-paragraph summary of the project, and a resume.  Two letters of reference should be emailed directly to the Center at ICJSFellowships@monticello.org.  Applications may be emailed or mailed to:
