I am halfway through a remarkable opportunity, the Hodson Trust/John Carter Brown Library Fellowship. The grant supported me for two months of research at the library in Providence (where there was a lot less snow than in Maryland!), about Aaron Burr’s conspiracy of 1805-07. The grant also will cover two more months of writing at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland, in June and July. (The living quarters in Chestertown are in the image below — not bad.)
They are taking applications for next year’s fellowship from writers, film directors, playrights, novelists . . . . so long as you are doing a topic from early American history (including South America). Not to mention the Patrick Henry Fellowship for nine months at Washington College.
If it might fit a project you’re working on check out the link — it’s a heck of a deal.
