Heritage Fellows


Heritage Fellows is an initiative of the Center for Baptist Heritage and Studies that selects a small group of undergraduate Virginia Baptist scholars from across the Commonwealth annually for an intensive educational experience in Baptist history and heritage, culminating in a supervised research project. Fellows are enlisted for projects in light of their research interests and receive a stipend for their work. They participate in the Society’s annual meeting and their projects are published.

We invite Heritage Fellows applications for the 2024-2025 academic year. Candidates must be sophomores or juniors at the beginning of the fall semester of the year of appointment. For complete criteria and additional description of the program, see application.
Deadline: July 15, 2024.
