Promoting New Scholarship
Each year, the Buffalo Bill Center of the West offers a limited number of research stipends for promising and established visiting western scholars in our fellowship program. Scholars research, write, and develop ideas and manuscripts that expand the horizon of western studies. Fellows may pursue field research in the Cody area (i.e., the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem or the Big Horn Basin and Mountains), work in the collections of the McCracken Research Library or one of our five museums, and, in the case of the Peter K. Simpson Fellowship, at the American Heritage Center in Laramie, Wyoming.
If scholars wish to apply for more than one of our Fellowships, they must submit separate applications for each.
