While at UVA, most institute participants will be housed in single occupancy rooms at competitive rates. Offered by UVA Conference Services, these rooms will be located on the University’s Central Grounds and adjacent to library facilities, the bookstore, dining areas, and institute meeting facilities. (Those participants who want housing for partners or family as well, do not fear—we can help you secure such housing also.) Meal plans will also be made available in dining facilities in close proximity to living quarters. Participants will be accorded “visiting scholar” status while at UVA, ensuring them full access to the University of Virginia’s world-class library system and the UVA campus-wide wireless network. The University libraries have over 5 million books, over 50,000 journal and newspaper subscriptions, 16 million manuscripts and archival documents, an extensive collection of microforms, a large and diverse teaching image collection, an audio collection of 70,000 CDs and LPs, and a sizable video collection spanning genres and nationalities, housed in 15 libraries or available online.

Participants in three-week projects, such as this one, will receive a stipend of $2,700. Stipends are intended to help cover travel expenses to and from the project location, books and other research expenses, and ordinary living expenses. Stipends are taxable. Applicants to all projects, especially those held abroad, should note that supplements will not be given in cases where the stipend is insufficient to cover all expenses.
