Center for Missouri Studies Fellowships Awarded in 2020

The State Historical Society of Missouri will award two Center for Missouri Studies fellowships in 2020 to scholars studying Missouri’s early statehood period. One of the fellowship projects will examine Jesuit ties to slavery within the early state, while the other will analyze treaties with Native Americans concerning title to the land that became Missouri.
