Oregon Heritage, part of the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, will award up to three fellowships to full-time students of an Oregon university or college for researching, writing and presenting a topic related to history, geography, archaeology, cultural heritage, or historic preservation in Oregon.  

Fellowship recipients will present their research process and findings at an Oregon Heritage event in 2017 (date to be determined) and may be invited to submit their project paper for possible publication in the Oregon Historical Quarterly. Fellows' research papers will also be posted on the Oregon Heritage website at www.oregonheritage.org.

The Oregon Heritage Fellowship is provided to encourage thoughtful inquiry of Oregon's heritage by emerging scholars. Many new topics remain to be studied, and fresh perspectives on current topics are needed to keep the exploration of Oregon's history fresh and relevant. The fellowship offers a financial incentive for these research efforts and an opportunity to publicly share what is learned with the heritage community. The hope is that these efforts will stimulate further inquiry and discussion, and even lead to broader distribution through publications and other media.
