By Julie Tapley-Booth

Special to The SUN

The Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College will offer an inaugural doctoral fellowship in Southwestern history, broadly defined, beginning in August. The fellowship is a collaborative effort between the center and the graduate program in the history department at the University of Colorado at Boulder. Doctoral candidates from the graduate program in Boulder are eligible for the full academic year fellowship to be performed in residence at the center in Durango.

The fellow in Southwestern history will provide research support at the center while also teaching in the Fort Lewis College department of history. While pursuing his or her own dissertation research and writing, the fellow will contribute to the public programs of the center by giving two presentations during the academic year on both personal research and support given to center collections projects and patrons.
