2017 Paid Summer Research Fellowships Announced (Charles City, VA)
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.

The Rudy J. Favretti Fellowship:
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.              

William D. Rieley Fellowship:
Westover Plantation, Charles City, VA
A quintessential James River plantation house, Westover is one of the country's premier examplesof 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.
