Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture Fellowships

The Omohundro Institute is comitted to building intellectual infrastructure. We are a dynamic community of authors, readers, and teachers dedicated to early American scholarship. 

Housed on the campus of William & Mary, the oldest public university in America, and situated in historic Williamsburg, Virginia, the Institute of Early American History and Culture was established in 1943 by the College of William & Mary and the colonial Williamsburg Foundation. The name of benefactors Mr. and Mrs. Malvern H. Omohundro, Jr., was added in 1996 in recognition of their generous support of the Institute. Annette Gordon-Reed, Pulitzer Prize winner and 2009 recpient of the National Humanties Medal as well as a MacArthur Fellow, characterizes the Institute as "one of the crown jewels of the American historical profession."
