The Virginia HBCU Scholars Fellowship funds the humanities research of scholars affiliated (alumni, faculty, or ABD doctoral student) with Virginia’s Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs) in service of Black, Indigenous and People of Color (BIPOC) heritage, stories, and communities. The fellowships are made possible by a major grant from the Dominion Energy Charitable Foundation built on their long record of support for HBCUs. Participants can look forward to a respite from demanding workloads and find a supportive environment designed to further or complete their research. Thanks to our role as the state’s humanities council and our relationship with the University of Virginia, we can provide fellows with full access to the resources and libraries at the University of Virginia and the Library of Virginia.
