FELLOWSHIP: Charles W. McCurdy Fellowship in Legal History (University of Virginia School of Law, Academic Year 2018-2019), DEADLINE 28 FEBRUARY 2018)

(Source: University of Virginia - School of Law)
In partnership with the National Fellows Program, the University of Virginia School of Law is soliciting applications for outstanding junior scholars for the 2018-19 Charles W. McCurdy fellowship in legal history.  The fellowship allows scholars to complete dissertations in legal history while in residence at the Law School, and the fellow will be expected to spend the majority of his or her time on dissertation research.  The University’s nationally renowned legal history program, which includes a workshop, a writing group, a JD/MA program in legal history, and an engaged community of interested scholars, provides a rich environment for a junior scholar.  The fellow will also help coordinate the legal history workshop and has the opportunity to present their work there.  As a part of the National Fellows Program, the McCurdy fellow is paired with a “dream mentor” – a senior scholar in the fellow’s field from anywhere in the world – who will provide critical guidance during the year.  The fellow will also participate in the National Fellows’ fall and spring conferences and will receive training on how to reach broader scholarly and non-scholarly audiences.  The fellow will receive a stipend of $32,000 for the year. 
Applicants must have completed the coursework toward a Ph.D. in history.  Strong preference will be given to applicants who hold a J.D. and who will complete their dissertation by the end of the fellowship year.  For the application, please see the National Fellows Program website.  Please direct any questions to Professor Cynthia Nicoletti at cln4x@virginia.edu.  Applications will be accepted until February 28, 2018.
