Visiting Fellows and Scholars

The Bill Lane Center Fellowships for Scholars of the West invites letters of inquiry from scholars who would like to spend time in residence at the Center during the 2015-2016 academic year. Letters of inquiry are due by January 31, 2015. 

The Center has fellowship funding available to support scholars whose work intersects with the mission and programs of the Center, who can contribute to the scholarly community at the Center, and who can advantageously use time at Stanford to advance their own scholarly projects. The terms of funding are negotiable depending on the length of the fellowship and any cost-sharing funds that scholars can bring from other institutions.

We are also able to offer visiting scholar status to qualified applicants who bring their own funding and have projects on the American West that are particularly suited to research at the Center and Stanford University.

Students who are currently enrolled in PhD programs are not eligible for visiting fellow or visiting scholar status.

Interested scholars should send a letter of inquiry and CV, both in PDF form, to Kathy Zonana, Associate Director, Bill Lane Center for the American West.
