Note that 5 of the 8 NC fellows are supported entirely by funds raised outside of NC and all have some support from other states. Only one NC fellowship is going to someone outside of NC. Let’s do our part! NC funds that have not yet reached stipend-producing level and for which contributions are specifically requested include:

  • Ann Chipley American Fellowship, #4051. [$50,424 of a required $100,000 raised as of 9/30/07.]
  • Charlotte Branch Research and Projects Fund, #1429. [$20,263 of a required $35,000 raised as of 9/30/07.]
