The fellowship also includes health benefits, faculty privileges, and a residency in a restored eighteenth-century house in historic Chestertown. The fellow is expected to teach a semester-long undergraduate seminar and give one lecture or workshop related to his or her work-in-progress. Submit a writing sample of any length, a project description, a brief course proposal, a curriculum vitae, and contact information for three references by November 1. There is no application fee.
