Residential Fellowship Program

The Russell Kirk Center Library, Mecosta, Michigan

A Unique Educational Opportunity

The Kirk Center's Residential Fellows Program affords students and scholars the ideal conditions in which they can conduct important research and writing. Fellows write books, essays, reviews, and theses while staying at Piety Hill for periods ranging from a few months to one year. Frequent in-house seminars formalize an already close and stimulating intellectual environment.

In addition to hosting Fellows from some of America's most distinguished academic institutions, the Kirk Center has also welcomed as Fellows scholars and students from Austria, Britain, France, Holland, Hungary, Germany, Italy, Romania, Yugoslavia, Poland, Russia, and the Czech Republic—giving the Center an important international dimension.

To live with a gnawing grudge against one’s own civilization is the way to a personal Hell, not to a Terrestrial Paradise.
