It is our pleasure to announce that ACOR has received a grant in support of our Virginia operations from Virginia Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan of 2020.
ACOR is based in Alexandria, Virginia. From our Alexandria office, Assistant Director Dr. China Shelton serves as ACOR’s face with Virginians and provides critical support for ACOR fellowships, communications, and a variety of other humanities-based initiatives. This grant will support a portion of the operational costs of ACOR’s Virginia office during the remainder of 2020.
“Virginia Humanities is the state humanities council. We aim to share the stories of all Virginians—or, better yet, find ways for people to share their own stories. We want to connect Virginians with their history and culture and, in doing that, help us all get to know each other a little better. We are headquartered in Charlottesville at the University of Virginia but our work covers the Commonwealth.”
