Chesapeake Heartland Staff & Faculty Fellowship

Staff & Faculty Fellowships are to be awarded to college staff and faculty who generate and/or engage Chesapeake Heartland materials while also collaborating with local community partners.

Digitization and interpretation efforts might take shape within courses, research projects, student activities and events, interpretive workshops, exhibits, public humanities programs, site visits, collaborations with local public schools, and other experiential and service learning opportunities. Toward the end of the year, each fellow will make a presentation along with other fellows, community members, and project stakeholders. Proposed projects should be collaborative and the proposed budget should reflect such collaboration: fellows may apply for up to $5,000 for the entire project, of which a maximum of $3,000 can be applied to an individual stipend with the remainder covering additional project costs including wages and stipends for collaborators. Fellows will serve as project managers and work closely with the Starr Center to administer and track expenses.

The deadline for the 2021-2022 Heartland Staff & Faculty fellowships has ended. Please check back in March 2022 for the next application. 

Eligibility: Staff and/or faculty of Washington College, including adjunct faculty and retired faculty and staff. Fellows may also include staff and/or faculty from other educational institutions who partner with faculty and staff from Washington College. To learn more about the Chesapeake Heartland’s mission and goals, please see the FAQ document
