From the fellowship
In November 2019, the National Archives Foundation launched a new research fund to honor Cokie Roberts, who shed light on the stories of countless women in U.S. history that were previously unknown to the public. She showed how these lives had an impact on our country’s narrative and added to the rich heritage of our nation. Just as her prose and spirited discussions brought moments in history to new audiences, the Cokie Roberts Fellowship for Women’s History seeks to encourage the next generation of historians, journalists and authors to continue this legacy.
