The new Book Arts Fellowship offers a hands-on learning experiences of printing and, a hallmark of book arts, papermaking—a unique, year-long academic leadership experience for two undergraduate UVa students interested in arts administration, public relations, project management, and community engagement.

Fellows will help shape and implement four distinct projects, rich in meaning and rooted in community inclusion, during their time in Book Arts at the Virginia Center for the Book.

These fellowships are opportunities for students to gain vital experience in the fields of nonprofit management and marketing, among other things, and we are also committed to ensuring that our fellows are paid for their time and effort.

Applications will be accepted on a rolling basis until the positions are filled. To apply, please submit your application via Handshake below or email your resume and cover letter to books@virginiahumanities.org in PDF format.

Fellows will work with Book Arts staff to determine a mutually agreeable and consistent schedule during regular business hours (Monday-Friday, 9:00 AM – 5:00 PM) at the Virginia Center for the Book (located in the Jefferson School City Center, 233 4th Street NW, Charlottesville).
