JASNA 2020 International Visitor Program

The Jane Austen Society of North America (JASNA) sponsors the International Visitor Program—a fellowship that supports a member of JASNA to work on a creative or scholarly project for four to six weeks, while also using his or her talents to serve the Austen-related institutions in Jane Austen’s village of Chawton, Hampshire.

Fellowship applications are assessed based on the importance and viability of the applicant’s project; the applicant’s need to have access to materials in or near Chawton; the audience(s) who will benefit from the applicant’s work; and the skills that the applicant brings to the Jane Austen House Museum, Chawton House, and St. Nicholas Church.

The duties of the fellowship involve spending up to fourteen hours per week working either at Chawton House, the Jane Austen House Museum, or St. Nicholas Church (or some combination thereof, as needed), and attending the annual meeting of the UK Jane Austen Society in July and assisting as needed. The fellowship stipend is $3,250.
