2017 Paid Summer Research Fellowships 
Spend your summer researching and documenting the landscape
history of a National Historic Landmark in Virginia. Two paid ($8,000) Fellowships are available to qualified graduate students.



Berkeley Plantation
Charles City, VA
One of the "first great estates in America", Berkeley is a National Historic Landmark, the site of the first Thanksgiving, the birthplace of "Taps", and the ancestral home of William Henry Harrison, the ninth President of the United States. Now 1,000 acres overlooking the James, the original brick buildings remain and five terraced gardens, thought to be dug by hand prior to the Revolutionary War, lead 1400 feet down to the river.              
Westover Plantation Charles City, VA

A quintessential James River plantation house, Westover is one of the country's premier examples of colonial Georgian architecture. The grounds of this National Historic Landmark include formal gardens, 150-year-old tulip poplars, a rare iron clairvoyee, icehouse with tunnel, five-hole privy, collection of barns, and 18th-century English wrought-iron gates, among the most elaborate in America.                            

Fellows spend a period of three summer months living in Virginia researching their respective historic site. Each Fellow's final report, including measured drawings, will be published online as well as archived into collections open to the public throughout the state.

Applicants must be candidates for a master's degree in landscape architecture, historic preservation, landscape or architectural history, archaeology, or horticulture.

Each Fellow will be paid a stipend of $8,000 plus certain living expenses. Housing will be provided.

Complete applications are due by 12:00 pm on Monday, March 20, 2017.
