About the Fellowship

During the Legacy Liberty program, fellows will work on a research project with a faculty mentor in their field of study who shares a passion for classical liberalism, open inquiry, and sound scholarship. With help from their faculty mentor, fellows will create an original piece of scholarship with the intention of future publication. 

Fellows will also attend networking and educational workshops throughout the fellowship, culminating in the Classical Liberals in the Carolinas conference in August 2020. At the conference, fellows will have an opportunity to share their research projects with other regional scholars as part of a poster presentation.

Fellows will receive free meals, lodging, travel, and registration fees for workshops and conferences attended as part of the fellowship.
