Stacy Lloyd III Fellowship for Bibliographic Study
In 2022 the Oak Spring Garden Foundation will award our annual Stacy Lloyd III Fellowship for Bibliographic Study to one outstanding early-career scholar, working in some area related to the history, art, and culture of plants, gardens and landscapes. This is our most prestigious award for researchers and scholars in the humanities. The award includes a $10,000 individual grant and requires a 2 – 8 week stay at Oak Spring. This fellowship will be granted to an exceptional researcher who is developing a new body of research that would especially benefit from access to Oak Spring’s library.
The individual selected for this award will be asked to spend 2 – 8 weeks at Oak Spring where they will be able to meet with staff, explore our 700-acre landscape and our efforts in sustainable land management, and visit our rare book library that holds over 19,000 objects, including many examples of botanical art. The Fellow will have ample time and space to work independently on their own projects during their stay. The only requirement during their time at Oak Spring will be to give one 45-minute presentation with time for questions, to Oak Spring staff and any other fellows or residents who might be on site.
