Fellows & Associate Fellows


Fellows comprise the academic governing body for the International Quilt Study Center & Museum. Fellows include scholars presently holding appointments at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who are concerned with the past, the present, and the future of quiltmaking traditions worldwide and with those who have practiced the tradition. Candidates for this status must be nominated by a Fellow and must present evidence of a research, teaching, or public service commitment to the preservation of the tradition. Fellows are elected by a majority vote of the Fellows.

Associate Fellows

Associate Fellows include persons not presently holding regular appointments at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln who have a professional interest in the purposes and program of the Center. Associate Fellows are invited to attend all special programs and exhibitions sponsored by the Center, but are not expected to attend an annual meeting.

Associate Fellows may serve as internship supervisors for students and may serve as adjunct members of a graduate student's reading committee. Associate fellows must be nominated by a Fellow. The nominator must present evidence of a research, teaching or public service commitment to the mission of the International Quilt Study Center & Museum. Associate Fellows are elected by a majority vote of the Fellows, but do not have voting privileges.
