About the Fellowship
The North Caroliniana Society offers on a competitive basis Archie K. Davis Fellowships to assist scholars in gaining access to resources contributing to knowledge of the state’s past. Beginning in 2020 the four or five awards will be in the $4,000-$5,000 range to cover travel and subsistence expenses while fellows conduct research in North Caroliniana. In evaluating proposals, the Society considers the qualifications of applicants; individual need; quantity, quality, and location of sources; length of research stay; plans for publication or other “product”; and, especially, potential of subject to advance among citizens of the state knowledge and understanding of their own history and culture.
