FELLOWSHIP APPLICATION INFORMATION AVAILABLE
The Heritage Programs Division of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department will provide 1-3 fellowships to undergraduate students who are seniors and to graduate students for researching, writing and presenting a topic related to history, geography, archaeology, cultural heritage, or historic preservation in Oregon.
The Fellowship recipients will make a 20-minute presentation of their project or research findings April 8 at the Oregon Heritage Conference in Astoria.
The purpose of the Heritage Fellowship is to encourage the thoughtful inquiry of Oregon's heritage by emerging scholars. Many new topics remain to be pursued, and fresh perspectives on previously examined topics are needed as well in order to keep the investigation of Oregon's history fresh and relevant. The Fellowship not only offers a financial incentive for those research efforts, it provides an opportunity for sharing the results with the Oregon heritage community through a public presentation.
The recipients must be a full-time student at a university in the State of Oregon. For more information, visit http://www.oregonheritage.org/OPRD/HCD/OHC/fellowship.shtml
