Morgan McMinn, West Virginia University
The American Branch is pleased to announce the winner of the 2024 Schallek Fellowship, Morgan McMinn of West Virginia University.
Morgan attended West Virginia University as an undergraduate where she majored in history and is currently studying for her Ph.D. As a freshman, she took an upper-level history course with Dr. Kate Staples on late medieval England. Inspired by Dr. Staples’s enthusiasm and the subject matter, she changed her major to history and never looked back. In her free time, Morgan enjoys reading, embroidering, and watching her chickens
In collaboration with the Medieval Academy of America, the American Branch offers a full-year fellowship and five graduate student awards annually. The fellowship and awards are supported by a generous gift to the Richard III Society from William B. and Maryloo Spooner Schallek. For more info and past winners, see our Schallek Page.
