AUSTIN — The Texas State Historical Association (TSHA) is now accepting applications for the Texas State Library and Archives Commission (TSLAC) Research Fellowship in Texas history. The fellowship includes a $2,000 stipend and is awarded for the best research proposal utilizing the collections of the State Archives in Austin.

The recipient of the fellowship may be asked to present the results of their research at a TSLAC event. The award will be announced at the TSHA's annual meeting in February 2020. Judges may withhold the award at their discretion.
