Purchase and renovation of an historic house for use as a fellows' residence, and endowment for a program of research and writing fellowships on the Founding Era and its legacy.

Washington College seeks to create new programs at its C.V. Starr Center for the Study of the American Experience, especially a residential Fellows program supporting outstanding work on the Founding era and its legacy. This innovative project, complementing our existing George Washington Book Prize, would be open to both academics and independent writers, focusing on book projects that contribute to public awareness of history beyond the academy. The Challenge Grant would create a Fellows Residence in a restored 18th-century house; endow year-long stipends and travel funds; and defray administrative and promotional costs. It would also significantly advance the College's and the Center's efforts to build a community of historians - from undergraduates to distinguished visiting Fellows - by providing new digital archives in American history for the college library and supplying the initial endowment for a new scholarship program for outstanding students in history and related fields.
