About the Role

The NC State University Libraries’ Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) and the Culture & Animals Foundation (CAF) are excited to offer the annual Tom Regan Visiting Research Fellowship.

Established in 2019 through the generosity of the CAF in memory of co-founder Tom Regan to promote scholarly research in animal rights, the fellowship supports the use of the SCRC’s Animal Rights Archive—the largest scholarly archive of animal rights collections in the country. In addition to the fellowship, the CAF offers annual grants to scholars and artists working on these issues, an annual lecture, and the Nancy Regan Arts Prize.

Regan Fellows have come from a range of disciplines including philosophy, history of science, and anthrozoology. Read about the four previous Fellows here.

In 2024, the Libraries and the CAF will award one fellowship providing a $5,000 stipend to a qualified applicant for research completed in residence at the SCRC for a term of no less than four weeks to begin on or after July 1 of this year. Application details may be found below. The application deadline is April 30.

Since the Regan Fellowship was launched, the Libraries has acquired new materials, including an extensive collection of Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) Records. Furthermore, through a grant from CLIR, new digital assets from the ASPCA are also available to researchers.

The SCRC builds collections of rare and unique materials to support the research and teaching needs of the university, emphasizing established and emerging areas at the university and corresponding to strengths within the Libraries’ overall collection. These rich collections serve as a foundation for generations of scholarship in animal protection, impacting and supporting scholars from across the nation.

About the Organisation

"The Culture & Animals Foundation is delighted to partner with the Animal Rights Archive at the NC State University Libraries to offer the Tom Regan Visiting Research Fellowships,” says Martin Rowe, CAF’s Executive Director. “The archive offers an unparalleled opportunity for scholars to explore many facets of Tom's work and the animal advocacy movement through the decades; the Fellowships can help make that happen."
