The Buffalo Bill Center of the West is now accepting applications for fellowship opportunities. 

Buffalo Bill Center of the West (CENTER) in Cody, Wyoming, invites proposals for its 2020–2021 Resident Fellowship Program. Fellowships are intended to fund research advancing knowledge, understanding, and passion about the extraordinary cultural and natural heritage of the American West and its timeless and global relevance.

Resident Fellowships: Fellows may pursue field research in association with ongoing studies conducted by CENTER curatorial staff in the Greater Yellowstone region or conduct archival and artifactual research among the collections of the CENTER: McCracken Research Library, the Buffalo Bill Museum, the Whitney Western Art Museum, the Plains Indian Museum, the Cody Firearms Museum,  or the Draper Natural History Museum.  

Peter K. Simpson Fellowship, in collaboration with the American Heritage Center (AHC) at the University of Wyoming:  This fellowship supports a 20-day stay divided between the BBCW and the AHC to research extensive collections on the American West in both repositories.  

Edwina S. Campbell Citizens of a Wider Commonwealth Fellowship: This fellowship funds research topics related to the transnational legacy of the American West and the European reception of Buffalo Bill and other high-profile American contemporaries who traveled abroad, such as President Ulysses S. Grant.

Alexander Phimister Proctor Fellowship: This fellowship funds research topics related to sculptor Alexander Phimister Proctor (1860–1950) and drawing on the Buffalo Bill Center of the West’s extensive collection of material related to the artist.
