The Historic New Orleans Collection calls application for the Dianne Woest Fellowship in the Arts and Humanities 2020. The Dianne Woest Fellowship in the Arts and Humanities supports scholarly research on the history and culture of Louisiana and the Gulf South. While THNOC resources should play a central role in the proposed research agenda, fellows are also encouraged to explore other research facilities in the Greater New Orleans area.
The Williams Prize Committee invites nominations of works published in the 2018 calendar year exploring any aspect of Louisiana history and culture or placing Louisiana subjects in a regional, national, or international context. Submit four (4) copies of the nominated work AND four (4) copies of the nomination form to the address listed on the form.
Nominations for the 2020 Williams Prize are due January 15, 2021. The prize committee encourages authors and presses to submit works throughout the year as they are published. Authors should contact their publishers to insure timely submission. Late submissions will not be considered.
The fellowship includes a stipend of $4,000. Fellows may select their period(s) of residence, but all research must commence and conclude during the specified fellowship term (April 1, 2021–March 31, 2022).
Applications for the 2021–22 Woest Fellowship will be due on November 15, 2020.
