Ver Steeg Fellowship
The Dorothy Ann and Clarence L. Ver Steeg Distinguished Research Fellow award is designed "to support the research of a tenured Northwestern faculty member whose research and scholarship are so outstanding as to enhance the reputation of Northwestern, nationally and internationally." The award was established and endowed by the late Clarence Ver Steeg, who was a faculty member in the department of history from 1950 until 1992 and served as Dean of The Graduate School from 1975 to 1986, and his wife Dorothy. It is Northwestern's first endowed award for excellence in research by a faculty member.
Awarded annually, the fellowship comes with a $36,000 research account.
